Vettel offers update on post-F1 activism plan

Sebastian Vettel, the 35-year-old four-times world champion whose retirement announcement shortly before the Summer break had rattled the F1 arena, had recently opened up on his post-F1 activism plan. Speaking in an interview with a media outlet the German admitted that he had yet to “figure out” what he would do during his official retirement period following the season finale at Abu Dhabi GP on November 20.

Meanwhile, speaking with the media outlet, adding that he has “so many ideas” about his retirement, the 35-year-old said, “Obviously, my views will not be retired and abandoned.

But in which form [I continue], I have to figure it out. I’m very much looking forward to having nothing scheduled and no commitments. What that does to me? It will do a lot of things to my head and to the dynamics. But I’m curious to find out what exactly that will be.

No commitments, nothing that I signed up for, and I have to do, sort of thing. But I have lots of ideas and things I would love to do, but they are not like thick commitments”. While being questioned about his move on climate change activities Vettel added, “The more I look, and the more I get into all of this, there’s a lot of people that are doing great things.

It’s great to raise awareness here, and then spread a seed and just make people look at what’s going on, and help to understand. I think once you understand, you start to care, and once you care, you’re happy to help”.

Vettel won four straight Formula 1 championship titles with Red Bull between 2010 and 2013.
