Sebastian Vettel: ‘As long as I still feel that will to compete, I will be here’

As a four-times Formula One world champion Sebastian Vettel surely has nothing left to prove, except it seems to himself. The German has endured a trying time of late but as his career enters a new phase, his passion for the sport is entirely undiminished. Vettel’s interests these days may be broader, extending from promoting the wellbeing of bees to a spot of early morning cow milking, but F1 remains the driving force.

F1: Lewis Hamilton picks out Sebastian Vettel rivalry as favourite in career

Seven-time Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton said on Thursday that his favourite rival in the sport has been Sebastian Vettel. Without mentioning former Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg, who beat the Briton to the 2016 title in a fierce and often bitter battle between the pair, Hamilton praised ex-Ferrari driver Vettel.

Lewis Hamilton vs Sebastian Vettel: a timeline of their rivalry

Sebastian Vettel and Fernando Alonso may struggle to remind F1 that they are not yesterday's men

As Lewis Hamilton reminded everyone once more of his enduring brilliance in Bahrain two weeks ago, two of his former rivals had ominous weekends. Fernando Alonso’s first race back in Formula One since 2018 ended with a brake failure caused by a sandwich bag ending up where it should not be. Sebastian Vettel, on debut for Aston Martin, started at the back and shunted into the back of Esteban Ocon in a familiarly worrying error.

Will Hülkenberg hire heap more pressure on Sebastian Vettel? — MPH

The confirmation of Nico Hülkenberg as Aston Martin’s official reserve driver might be read as simply the logical continuation of last year’s status quo after he did a fine stand-in job at Silverstone and the Nürburgring. Or it might be interpreted as a ramping up of the pressure upon Sebastian Vettel after his inauspicious first race for the team in Bahrain, where he collided with Esteban Ocon’s Alpine in a way unfortunately similar to several of his collisions over the previous couple of years. In close-quarter wheel-to-wheel situations his judgement seems to be a little fuzzy.

Sebastian Vettel Is Selling All His Ferraris

But he wants you to know it’s not because of something petty…. There’s no debating Sebastian Vettel is an excellent Formula One driver, but even the best aren’t above spite. Of course, the man who drove for the Ferrari F1 team for 6 long years is saying he doesn’t feel any ill will towards the Italian stallion, even though he’s currently selling off all the Ferraris in his car collection. It’s the kind of thing a spurned teenage girl would do, getting rid of everything which reminds her of getting dumped in favor of another girl, but Vettel swears this is different.

Did Sebastian Vettel Actually Forget How To Go Fast?

My dog woke me up this morning at 3 AM, and I couldn’t get back to sleep. As luck would have it, it was the perfect time for me to log into F1TV to catch pre-season testing. I’ve always been an F1 fan, but last year really drew me in, and this year I’m more invested than I ever have been. So why not flip it on and see how everyone stacks up. Obviously pre-season testing isn’t going to determine how anyone does when the lights go out at the season opener in a couple weeks, but there are some interesting takeaways here.
