hey wrote, “After Schumacher retired, Vettel was my favorite driver. So dominant at a young age.”

“I used to watch his onboards on F1’s website during high school…may have gotten in trouble a few times for it. Sad to watch his final race today, but at only 35yrs old, think well [We will] see a comeback?”

Bilicki, who used to watch Vettel from his high school days, asked a valid question. However, whether Seb will return in the future is something only he can tell us.

Despite fighting Daniel Ricciardo for P9 for quite some time, the German ultimately had to give up and settle for tenth place. The Abu Dhabi weekend saw Vettel pull out some brilliant qualifying performances as well.
