Sebastian Vettel: “There will come a time when no one will remember me”

Sebastian Vettel believes there will come a time when he will not be remembered as a four-time Formula 1 world champion.

At the end of this season, Sebastian Vettel, after a career of 15 years, will be at the wheel of Formula One. His comfort looks impressive with four world titles, fifty-three race wins and two hundred and ninety-five races, but we can’t ignore the fact that things haven’t gone smoothly for Heppenheimer in recent years.

However, the love for the sport has yet to subside, Vettel says on the Aston Martin website. “I love sports, I love racing.”

“It was a tough decision to quit but I’ve been thinking about it for a while. I know how much dedication the sport takes and I feel like now is the time to do other things.”

He frankly admits that his last seasons with Aston Martin did not go as planned.

“It was a challenge because the car was not as competitive as we had hoped. This year we wanted to make a big difference compared to last year and we failed to do so. We are now where we finished last year.”

“I’m not pointing fingers at anyone and not saying we haven’t done a good job. I’m just realistic, we had high expectations and we didn’t live up to them.”

Vettel also points out that he is not at all sure if he would have continued if he had seen a better period in recent years.

“Would I retire if I had been more competitive in the last three or four years: winning races, fighting for the title or maybe winning another race?”

“I might have made the same decision. I wouldn’t have done it either. Impossible to say, but it happened to me.”

“Being 10th doesn’t bother me because I know what it means to get 1st. If you never win, it really means something to you when you first come 10th. But I’m glad it doesn’t bother me to finish 10th.”

Despite his honor roll, Vettel believes his name may not stand the test of time.

“I once heard someone say, ‘You will remain in your memory until the last person you remember dies.”

“Let me put the question this way. The UK has a new king but it’s not the first King Charles, there were two other kings before him. Do you remember those two others? Probably not. There is a limit.”

“There will likely come a time when no one will remember me. Nothing lasts forever.”

Sebastian Vettel’s F1 career is fast approaching and many people want to thank him for his contribution to the sport, but he is also grateful to the people who have supported him all these years.

“You know, it’s funny. A lot of people want to thank me, but I really want to thank them more.”

“If I did what I did but no one was looking at it, no people in the stands, no outside feelings, it wouldn’t mean anything.”

“I want to thank so many people for making my career, my life, and all that it is.”
