From world champion to the people’s champion! Sebastian Vettel supports the LGBTQ+ community, called out Russia after their invasion of Ukraine, picked up litter at Silverstone and even helped a fan’s proposal… the German has emerged as F1’s role model

For a long time, one of the laziest tropes in Formula One was that Sebastian Vettel was a man devoid of personality. ‘In younger years you don’t necessarily not see these things but you just grow up and mature and see more things and become more and more aware of certain things that are going on in the world,’ Vettel told The Race last year. And Vettel did not seek out the cameras, a ploy for some easy PR. ‘I find it embarrassing for a country in the EU to vote on laws like this,’ Vettel said. In one moment, Vettel, who was later called to the stewards’ room for his actions, showed all of his class. But what Vettel is doing is hold people to account and provide a voice for the voiceless, which makes him the best in class.
