Vettel started his Formula One career as a test driver for BMW Sauber in 2006, making a one-off racing appearance in 2007. As part of the Red Bull Junior Team, Vettel appeared for Toro Rosso later that year and was kept as a full-time driver for 2008.
Vettel was promoted to Red Bull in 2009. With Red Bull, Vettel won four consecutive titles from 2010 to 2013, the first of which made him the sport’s youngest World Champion. In 2013, he set the record for the most consecutive race wins with nine.
Vettel signed for Ferrari for 2015 and became Mercedes’ and Lewis Hamilton’s closest challenger in two title fights in 2017 and 2018, although he finished both years as runner-up.
He left Ferrari to race with Aston Martin for the 2021 and 2022 seasons, before announcing his plans to retire from Formula One at the end of the 2022 season.
Sebastian Vettel Abu Dhabi Grand Prix
Sebastian Vettel finished 10th in the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix to round out his illustrious Formula One career and bid adieu to the F1 racing track.
Numerous events were held to commemorate Vettel’s final race, including a track run on Saturday night that the four-time world champion organised for spectators of all skill levels.
Additionally, Lewis Hamilton paid for all 20 drivers’ meals at a dinner earlier this week to bid the German driver farewell.
Before the race, the other competitors presented Vettel with a guard of honour, and after the finish line, he performed doughnuts on the track.
After getting out of his car, he was then given an interview in front of the main grandstand, which is usually only given to the top three finishers.
So “I feel a bit empty, to be honest, it’s been a big weekend,” Vettel said in an interview on track after the race as quoted by ESPN.
