Vettel wants to do it like Raab: “Just dive down”

Sebastian Vettel (36) wants to break away from Formula 1 after the end of his career – and takes Stefan Raab (56) as a role model. The premier class of motorsport was “my purpose in life for 16 years,” said the four-time world champion in an interview with Der Spiegel: “Now I secretly expect myself to be able to cope without Formula 1 – as if I were doing a withdrawal.”

Role models are people “who have managed to simply submerge and take the next step in life” – such as TV presenter and producer Stefan Raab. “He was so omnipresent in the German television landscape, announced that he was going to stop – and then it was practically silent from one day to the next,” said Vettel: “Now you have to ask him whether he’s happy with it or not. But first of all I think it’s admirable , when someone detaches himself from public observation to such an extent that one has the feeling: he has not become dependent on it. This danger is particularly great in sport.”

Basically, Vettel is already separating work and private life: “I have no pictures of myself on the wall at home, no trophies on display. I have a lot of other interests that I’m looking forward to. And at home with three children it will be anyway never boring.”

Vettel would “like to” completely rule out a comeback attempt in the future, “but I can’t do that. I have no idea how I’ll be ticking in a year or two. However, I wish that in two years I would still say: No Thanks, I don’t need to race anymore.”

Vettel won four world titles with Red Bull between 2010 and 2013, and with 53 Grand Prix victories, he is the most successful driver behind Lewis Hamilton (103) and Michael Schumacher (91). This season Vettel is only in midfield with Aston Martin, after the races in Brazil (November 13) and Abu Dhabi (November 20) he ends his career.

Accident consequences slow down Hamilton – Ferraris before Verstappen

World Champion Max Verstappen and the Ferrari duo also met on an equal footing in the final practice session for the Austrian Grand Prix.

Carlos Sainz and Charles Leclerc took first and second place for the Scuderia, Verstappen in the Red Bull was less than two tenths of a second behind in third place.

Unlike usual on Saturday afternoon, however, it was less about the one fast lap, because the program is different this weekend in Spielberg: qualifying took place on Friday, where Verstappen took pole position for the sprint race on Saturday afternoon (4:30 p.m.) ahead of Leclerc ) – this is about the starting grid for the Grand Prix on Sunday (3:00 p.m.).

In free practice, the teams were already concerned with the race simulation, the balance of the car and the behavior of the tires.

Formula 1: Schumacher finishes in 15th place
Aston Martin driver Sebastian Vettel, who will start the sprint from 20th place after poor qualifying, finished 13th. Mick Schumacher im Haas will start the sprint in seventh place, at noon he was 15th.

However, Mercedes was still suffering from the events of Friday on Saturday. Lewis Hamilton and George Russell each crashed into the barriers in qualifying, both Silver Arrows had to be repaired under great time pressure.

Hamilton has significantly less time than Russell
Russell’s car was almost ready on time, the Englishman spending quite a lot of time on the track. Hamilton, however, was slowed down significantly more by the consequences of his accident and was only able to leave the garage in the final phase.

Only 13 laps remained for the record world champion. That wasn’t optimal preparation for the sprint over 24 laps.

Championship points are already awarded in the short race, and the first eight are rewarded. Verstappen came to Austria with a clear lead, with 181 points he is well ahead of his team-mate Sergio Perez (147) and Leclerc (138).
