Sebastian Vettel has admitted that there will always be a possibility of a comeback to the
Formula One grid in the future, saying he “can’t exclude” the possibility.

Vettel retired from Formula One after the 2022 season following one of the most successful
careers in the sport. Vettel’s 15-year career included 16 seasons, four world titles, 53 wins, 57
pole positions, and 122 podiums across 299 grand prix.

Vettel spent the last two years of his career at Aston Martin where he was far from the glory
years. From 2010 through 2013, Vettel won four consecutive championships at Red Bull, in
addition to championship battles with Ferrari. He had raced for BMW Sauber, Toro Rosso, Red
Bull, Aston Martin, and Ferrari by the end of his career.

In the last three seasons of the sport, Vettel finished 13th, 12th, and 12th again in the Drivers
Standings one with Ferrari and two with Aston Martin.

At 36, Vettel is relatively more than half a decade younger than the senior-most driver on the
grid, 42-year-old Fernando Alonso, it was also recently confirmed that Lewis Hamilton will
continue racing for Mercedes-Benz well over his 40s.

In response to a question about whether he may join drivers like Alain Prost, Niki Lauda, Nigel
Mansell, Kimi Raikkonen, and Fernando Alonso in making a comeback to Formula One after a
break, Vettel told Sky Sports: “I can’t say no, because you don’t know.

Vettel expressed his belief that if one were to ask all of them, some might have responded with
‘No,’ and others with ‘I don’t know.’ However, in the end, all of them came back, so the
possibility could not be excluded.

Vettel mentioned that there was still a significant amount of life remaining, and life could be
enjoyable even when not engaged in racing at the absolute limit in the fastest car in the world.
He added that there were still plenty of enjoyable activities that could provide great pleasure.
