Formula 1-Pensioner Sebastian Vettel Apparently the gas foot is itching again!
As “Auto Motor und Sport” reports, the four-time Formula 1 world champion is about to retire. Accordingly, the ex-motorsport star is considering taking part in the legendary Le Mans race next year.
Vettel on the verge of a sensational return!
According to the report, the German could compete for the Porsche customer team “Jota” in the top prototype class. But nothing has been signed yet. Le Mans doesn’t take place until the 15th/16th. June 2024.
Vettel: “I have it in the back of my mind, but I haven’t made a final decision yet. I still have time.”
Mega team for Vettel? If Vettel really decides to make a motorsport comeback, he could start together with the two ex-Formula 1 drivers Robert Kubica (38) and Jenson Button (43).
Vettel can make the final decision after testing for the British team in Spain. These could come soon.
It remains to be seen whether Vettel will only drive at Le Mans or the entire WEC season. It is important for Vettel that he continues to have enough time for his family.
Vettel visited the Japanese Grand Prix at the weekend to set up bee hotels along the track. In doing so, the racing driver wants to send a signal that biodiversity is a global issue to which everyone can make a contribution. Vettel is strongly committed to climate and nature protection.
But he doesn’t seem to be able to give up racing either.
