Sharjah 24 – Asaad Khalil:

German Sebastian Vettel, the four-time world champion Aston Martin, announced today, Thursday, that he will bring the curtain down on his career at the end of the current season of the Formula One world championship.

Aston Martin expressed confidence that the 35-year-old Vettel would extend his contract with the team, but the German driver decided to bring the curtain down on his career in November.

Vettel revealed his decision to retire in Budapest on the sidelines of his participation in the Hungarian Grand Prix at the weekend.

“The decision to retire was difficult for me to make, I spent a lot of time thinking about it,” the British news agency “PA Media” quoted Vettel as saying today, Thursday.

“At the end of the year, I need to spend more time thinking about what I will focus on next,” he added.

Vettel won four consecutive world titles with Red Bull between 2010 and 2013.

Vettel’s experience with Ferrari did not work, and his career with Aston Martin in the past two seasons was not successful.

“It is very clear to me that as a father, I want to spend more time with my family,” the German said.

“Today it is not about farewell, but to say thank you to everyone, especially the fans, without their passionate support, Formula 1 would not be here.”

Vettel won 53 Grand Prix races during his career, and is widely regarded as the successor to legendary Michael Schumacher as German motorsport champion.

Vettel rose to prominence in 2008 when he surprisingly won the Italian Grand Prix with the humble Toro Rosso team.

Since then Vettel has become a superstar in the F1 sky, but he has not captured the imagination of German fans like Schumacher, as his dominant Red Bull career often came through tedious races, where he dominated the races with little competition from the rest of the drivers.

In recent years, Vettel has worked to transform Formula One into environmentally friendly racing, criticizing energy-threatening excesses, and campaigning for drivers’ freedom of expression.
