‘I wasn’t axed, it was my call to quit’: Sebastian Vettel states he wasn’t forced into Aston Martin exit ahead of upcoming F1 retirement… while insisting he had a ‘brilliant time’ at Ferrari despite failing to win the world championship in six seasons

One theory is that Vettel’s backing of ‘Just Stop Oil’ protesters at Silverstone after they ran on the track was the last straw. ‘People say I am greenwashing,’ he says, acknowledging the rub in travelling to 22 races across the world. I choose to drive to every race in Europe rather than fly, apart from Silverstone and Hungary. ‘Having my own children is a factor in seeing things in the way I now do. Vettel will be replaced next season by Spaniard Fernando Alonso — at 41, six years his senior and the man he replaced at Ferrari back in 2015.
