Vettel is ready to return to driving (...)

Sebastian Vettel may not drive for the last time on the Suzuka circuit.

This morning, at a press conference, the future F1 retiree said he loved this circuit and he does not rule out returning to drive there one day, as part of another series.

« I’m delighted to be back here, I don’t know if it’s the last time but I missed Suzuka. The fans today, the circuit tomorrow, it’s a pleasure! »

« I’ve always loved the track, I think it stands out. It’s my favorite track on the calendar, and the calendars have changed over so many years. Tracks have disappeared from the calendar and we’ve added other tracks but since my very first time it’s been a special place just the layout of the corners the first sector it’s iconic a figure eight track the only one we have plus the vibe and the attention the sport gets when we come here is crazy. I have a lot of great memories too. »

Vettel could be tempted by Super GT or Super Formula in Japan.

« I guess they also race at Suzuka. I don’t know, never say never. It’s a great track for so many reasons, and who knows what the future holds. I don’t know. Obviously I love driving, and around this circuit I always felt very alive and the passion is very much alive. We’ll see what kind of car comes to me in the future. »

Another possibility, come back to an F1 car!

« Maybe one of these guys (Alonso, Magnussen, Latifi and Tsunoda present at his side, editor’s note), in one of the future races here, will feel a little sick. I don’t wish it but it doesn’t I wouldn’t mind going back for a race at Suzuka anytime. »

« Obviously we’ll see what the future holds, but at the moment I don’t have any plans. But there are some exciting races going on in Japan. I don’t know, we’ll see. »

Is it serious or just empty words?

« About a new career in the future? Yeah. And if someone is happy to sign a driver for just one race, that would be something I would seriously consider. »

« I hadn’t thought about the other races…obviously I know it will also be my last time at other circuits, but here it’s a bit different. »
