Sebastian Vettel is already living his final moments in Formula 1, but he does not face the last races of the 2022 season in a relaxed way, quite the opposite. And Aston Martin has highlighted the German’s commitment each weekend, underscoring the professional stance of the four-time world champion.
Mike Krack, team principal at Silverstone, spoke to Autosport about Vettel’s future after the Abu Dhabi GP, which closes this year’s Worlds, saying he has not yet spoken with the 34-year-old about what will be done going forward. . “We didn’t talk about it, to be honest, and also because the announcement [da aposentadoria] came just before closing [do vínculo com a Aston Martin].”
“I think we have to give him time to think about it. He needs to make plans. And I believe that, before he starts doing something else, he’s going to want some time off, so we haven’t talked about it yet,” added the manager. .

Vettel had already said after the Belgian GP that he did not see himself in a kind of “farewell tour”, even saying that he had not passed through the mythical Eau Rouge thinking that it was the last time there in an F1. The German, by the way, is focused not only on this year’s work, but also on the next, as Krack revealed that he has been giving a lot of opinion about the 2023 project.
“He is very professional, he will give his all until the last moment. The first thing he said when he informed us that he was going to stop was that he was going to give it all until the end. And we saw that today [no domingo, após o GP da Bélgica]”, concluded Krack.
