Sebastian Vettel will retire at the end of the season

It was with a simple press release that Aston Martin and Sebastian Vettel (35) announced the news on Thursday: the quadruple world champion (2010, 2011, 2012, 2013) will no longer drive in F1 next year. The one who had for some years discovered an ecological conscience fighting for bees and against the misdeeds of industrialization on the planet will not have lasted long at Aston Martin.

Thanked curtly by Ferrari at the heart of the great confinement of 2020, Vettel had been seduced by the project of Lawrence Stroll, Lance’s father wishing to relaunch the British manufacturer in F1 to make it a winning team. Alas, the German did not find what he was looking for in the Silverstone factory: victories, peace of mind and a platform to lead his ecological fight.

Mick Schumacher holds the rope to replace him

Lance Stroll will therefore have a new teammate next year and Mick Schumacher holds the rope to replace Sebastian Vettel who will remain THE driver in the Red Bull sector. The German has, among other things, 289 GPs, 53 victories, 57 poles, 122 podiums and will have climbed all the steps year after year until he won Red Bull victories and then titles (from 2010 to 2014). Before leaving, in vain in 2015, for Ferrari where he would have liked to reproduce what his idol Michael Schumacher achieved: to win the Scuderia again.
