Gone was the image of the 2008 Italian Grand Prix. A young man Sebastian Vettel, at the controls of a weak and slow Toro Rosso took pole position and his first victory in the Formula 1. However, nothing was going to stay there. The German amounted to Red bull and achieved four consecutive titles, from 2010 to 2013, to reach Ferrari and thus continue to enlarge its image.
Despite his incredible record, Vettel’s passage through the Italian team left much to be desired. While he did fight a few seasons, he could never live up to the Mercedes, that from the hand of Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton they won seven consecutive manufacturers ‘and drivers’ titles, while Ferrari watched the conquests from below.
This Tuesday an interview was released to the medium ‘Racer’, in which Vettel spoke of his future in Formula 1, and in which he begins to devise when and how his retirement will be. «I don’t see myself in Formula 1 at 40. I will compete for a few more years, but not ten more. I think you have to be aware of that. And after what I accomplished in this sport, there was time and space to think about what I was doing and what I wanted to do next. You know what I have decided and we will see how it goes ”.
Although in the 2021 season he will be present in Formula 1, the German assured that he was very close to retiring in case the offer of Aston martin to continue. «I think that if one door closes, another opens. Obviously it took a little time and raised a lot of questions: which door do I want to open? It wasn’t that I had to choose between all the teams, it was about what I wanted for my future, whether to stay in Formula 1 or to leave. I made up my mind and opened the door, “he said.
On the other hand, the former Ferrari driver commented that he did not want to convince the leaders of the Italian team to stay in the team. I don’t need to, that doesn’t change anything. I don’t see it that way. It doesn’t go like this. I have no problem with it, and I fully accept it. When Mattia Binotto He informed me of this by phone, it was clear. I did not try to defend myself or convince him, at all, “he said.
