Vettel: I will miss Schumacher at Race of Champions
Four time F1 world champion, Sebastian Vettel signs up for Race of Champions (one week before the F1 season’s finale in Abu Dhabi) as Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button also consider competing at the London Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

Also the German admits he will miss having Michael Schumacher as his team-mate. The Ferrari speedy won six consecutive ROC Nations Cup titles with the legend Michael Schumacher for Germany.

The British duo Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button are in talks with organisers about competing in front of the home crowd.

Tom Kristensen, record winner of the Le Mens 24-hour race, world rallycross champion Petter Solberg and reigning ROC champion David Coulthard are among drivers already confirmed to take part.

“I’m looking forward to returning to the Race Of Champions, which I’ve enjoyed competing in since my Formula 1 debut in 2007,” Vettel told the ROC homepage.

“It is going to be very exciting to race cars in the stadium that hosted the 2012 London Olympic Games.

“Of course I’ll miss having Michael as my team-mate this time but I’ll try my best to bring the ROC Nations Cup trophy back to Germany and to win my first individual ROC title. That is one trophy that is still missing from my collection.”
