Vettel ponders post-F1 options as he rules out politics

Sebastian Vettel might not be walking away from F1 just yet but the German admits he is starting to think about life after he leaves the sport.

Sebastian Vettel admits he is thinking about what his life might look like after he leaves F1, and it is unlikely to include politics or punditry.

The German has been confirmed to stay at Aston Martin in 2022 but has previously said that, unlike Fernando Alonso, he does not see himself still being in the sport when he is 40.

Given this, 34-year-old Vettel has considered how he might occupy himself when he retires and, despite his increasing activism, does not envision himself becoming a politician.

"Not being a fan of the media, I'm not sure politics would be the right place for me," Vettel told The Race. "Look at my age and I'm not going to be around F1 for the next 10 years.

"For sure, I'm thinking about what might be next. I'm easily captured by passionate people even if it's things I don't currently have an interest in. I can easily grow a new passion."

Another role that Vettel does not see himself in is that of a TV pundit, which is a common route for former F1 drivers.

However, the four-time World Champion is keeping an open mind.

"For any sportsman or racing driver in the past, it's been a big challenge to find something," Vettel explained. "The easiest way would be to become a Sky reporter and find yourself in the same place for the next few years.

"I don't see myself doing that but I love the sport and don't want to turn my back on it and say 'never again'.

"For sure, I'm thinking about other things. I have a family so it's easy to have things to take care of when I retire."

For the time being, Vettel will be hoping for some better luck as the 2021 season heads into its final stages.

The Aston Martin driver has not finished in the top 10 since the Belgian Grand Prix, where half-points were awarded despite the race only running for a few laps behind the Safety Car in the heavy rain.

Prior to that, Vettel secured a podium in Hungary, but was later disqualified after the FIA were unable to take enough of a fuel sample from his car at the end of the race.

It's time for the latest episode of the RacingNews365 podcast, with F1 journalists Dieter Rencken, Thomas Maher and Mike Seymour discussing Lewis Hamilton's strategy drama and much, much more from the Turkish Grand Prix.
