Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton have been bitter rivals on the track for the F1 championship for the last 5 years. It has been a well-executed rivalry of two drivers.

However, Hamilton has had the last laugh which has left the Ferrari driver to miss out on a trophy for the last 5 times. It is for this that most critics may have Vettel retiring from F1. Despite all that, Vettel is yet to call it quits as both a Ferrari driver and in the F1 races.

Vettel’s success at Red Bull

Before Vettel joined Ferrari, he was winning multiple championships at Red Bull. As a red Bull driver, he was an unstoppable force. However, on signing with Ferrari, that is when the championship drought started to take effect.

He has been finishing behind the Mercedes driver, and major rival, Lewis Hamilton. He, however, sees his career as a F1 driver as being far from over. It is thus a mere speculation on his retirement, but at the age of 30, the day of retirement for the Ferrari driver is looming.

A message to his fans on retirement

Sebastian Vettel had a chance to send a message to his fans when this question popped up. It was clear that he was not ready to share the news about his exit from F1. According to the current F1 standings, Vettel is still the second best F1 driver behind Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton. In that case, he looks to stay a little bit longer as long as he is having fun and happy driving for the Ferrari team.

He noted that, the day he no longer finds it fun, he will surely vacate and retire once and for all. Find the best mobile phone casino no deposit bonus offers for newcomers. Learn how to take advantage of the bonus offers and which mobile games to play at reputable casinos.

The urge to leave it for other drivers

He feels that he needs to leave it for the younger drivers who have a lot of passion, drive and are having fun driving in F1. Vettel has achieved huge milestones in F1 and if he decided to vacate the seat for other younger drivers, then he will have nothing to lose. It is all about where his heart is. If he no longer values his place as an F1 driver, then he can give that chance to someone else who is hungrier.

Lewis Hamilton’s F1 future

Lewis Hamilton is 32 years of age and is also looking to retire in the near future. After winning the 2017 F1 championship, the Mercedes driver is thinking of the life after F1 racing. It has been an illustrious and successful career for the world number one F1 driver which makes sense if he also retires next year, when his contract with Mercedes expires. However, it would be the saddest thing for him as he loves the drive the Mercedes plus the thrill of the sport and wins. If the two F1 drivers, at their prime, decide to vacate, it will be an interesting thing to see who steps up to their place.
