Sebastian Vettel’s Retirement
In honor of Sebastian Vettel’s Retirement, the whole Formula One team goes out to eat.
Before his farewell race at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix this weekend, all 20 drivers in the 2022 Formula 1 field got together for a celebratory meal to honor Sebastian Vettel’s Retirement. After announcing his retirement from Formula One at the end of the 2022 season, four-time World Champion Vettel will complete his career this weekend.
Many drivers blogged and posted on social media about the meal, which was held the night before the first day of practice at Yas Marina Circuit. Many drivers, such as George Russell, Pierre Gasly, Lando Norris, and others, shared their experiences at the meal online.
The event was one of several celebrations of Vettel’s life that have already occurred and will continue all weekend long. Fernando Alonso, a contemporarily and long-time adversary of Vettel’s, has unveiled a commemorative helmet he will wear in the future. Another of Vettel’s long-time rivals, Lewis Hamilton, recently speculated that the 35-year-old German might return to the grid. In the meanwhile, reigning world champion Max Verstappen thanked Vettel for visiting him in the hospital after his incident at the British Grand Prix in 2017.
Sebastian Vettel’s Retirement told the reporters on Thursday that he is “okay” as he starts to feel the emotions of his last racing weekend.
“It’s kind of hard to get my head around, but I’m cognizant of the situation and pleased with the outcome. Towards the best of my knowledge, “This is what Vettel stated. “Yes, I suppose there will come a day when things are different. Despite the usual nature of today, there is a noticeable shift in the air. I have no idea how much or what form it will take yet. If you catch me, you’ll just have to ask me again.”
From 2010 through 2013, Sebastian Vettel’s Retirement won four consecutive World Championships, matching him with Alain Prost for the fourth-most in Formula One history. After Michael Schumacher (91) and Lewis Hamilton (103) he has the third-most Grand Prix wins of all time with 53.
