Now that Sebastian Vettel has retired from Formula 1, how should his career be remembered? That’s just one of the questions asked on the latest episode of The Race F1 Podcast.

Scott Mitchell-Malm and special guest Lee McKenzie join host Edd Straw to discuss Vettel’s ‘perfect’ farewell – a decision that was made on his own terms, and which preceded a competitive end to a career that yielded four world championships.

How Vettel handled the emotions of his final weekend, the respect and affection he commanded from his peers, and his contribution to Aston Martin at an important time are all discussed.

There’s also a look at the past – from the vast difference in public perception and the real person he was subject to early in his career and how that’s changed, to the times where his off-track persona was unrecognisable in heated moments on the track – and what the future holds for Vettel who, among other things, has spent recent years learning more about and raising awareness of the climate emergency.
