Sebastian Vettel, the former F1 driver for teams like Red Bull, Ferrari, and Aston Martin, has indicated that he would return to Formula One if the sport adopts environmentally friendly choices like synthetic fuels. The German's retirement at the conclusion of the 2022 season was motivated in part by his long-held commitment to environmental protection. Sebastian Vettel has maintained his retirement from racing, although rumours have circulated regarding a possible comeback to the sport in a management capacity. The top adviser for the Red Bull Formula One team acknowledged trying to convince the four-time world champion to take the role. It has also been speculated that the German would go to the Audi F1 team full-time in 2026. Valtteri Bottas and Guanyu Zhou are the current drivers for the Swiss-based team. The German automaker will make its debut in F1 as a manufacturer and the fact that Audi's current CEO, former McLaren Team Principal Andreas Seidl, is German may indicate that the brand values its ties to the country.

Sebastian Vettel has often spoken about the catastrophic effects of climate change and the need to safeguard the environment. The German is doing everything he can to save the planet by participating in environmental programmes like "Race without Trace" and "Save the Bees."

Since leaving Formula One, Vettel has been so dedicated to raising awareness of this issue that he has even launched his own website to do so. His involvement in various events and the businesses he promotes that work towards this goal is detailed on this site.

Why Sebastian Vettel is Good Fit for Audi in F1

Audi's entry into Formula 1 is still roughly three years away. The German manufacturers, though, have made it very plain that they have no intention of showing up to the grid unprepared. The Ingolstadt-based behemoth has joined forces with Sauber and plans to enter Formula 1 with their assistance.

Before the start of the 2023 Formula 1 season, Sauber had already secured the services of German engineer Andreas Seidl. The fact that Audi produces all of its Power Units in its Neuburg facility in Germany demonstrates how critically vital the "German factor" is to the company. So it stands to reason that when they make their Formula 1 debut, they will turn to the German F1 icon Vettel as a role model.
