Sebastian Vettel stated that the relationships with people he has met during his Formula 1 career are his “most meaningful legacy”.

Vettel announced ahead of the Hungarian GP that he will retire from the championship after the 2022 season. The 35-year-old won 4 world championships and 53 races, finished on the podium 122 times, and took 57 pole positions.

When asked about the legacy he has created during his career, Vettel replied: “I had a similar question, ‘What do you keep?’, and I said, ‘I will keep a lot of silverware!’

“But I think more than that is really the memories, the emotions, the highs and the lows, the people that I’ve met.

“Lewis [Hamilton] is obviously one of the central figures in the last years, [one of] the friends I made, and that stays. It would be a much harder decision [to retire] if you give up all of that and you lose all these people.

“Obviously, I will not see them as regularly as now and it will be very different but it’s the friendships, the people, and the relationships that stay.

“That’s probably the biggest one that I’m looking forward to keeping, and the most meaningful legacy.”
