One of the commentators mentioned Sebastian Vettel and the unexpected comments he made when speaking to them during the 2023 Race of Champions in Sweden.
The Germans took part in the competition among other well-known race car drivers, like Jamie Chadwick, Mika Hakkinen, Sebastien Loeb, etc. Sadly, he came in second to his countryman Mick Schumacher and was disqualified from the championship race.
Sebastian Vettel announced his retirement from F1 in 2022, as we all know. Nobody is certain if Vettel will be seen behind the wheel of an F1 vehicle, despite the fact that other drivers have come back to the sport since retiring.
One of the Race of Champions commentators disclosed how the German made a lighthearted suggestion that he is not yet retired from racing in footage that was posted on Twitter. Sebastian Vettel allegedly said: “You didn’t really believe I’d retire, did you?” to the commentator.
The commentator described how drivers like Sebastian Vettel find it difficult to get rid of the racing sense. The four-time F1 world champion’s enthusiasm for rally racing was also made known.
With the use of this information, we may make a guess as to whether the Germans will ever try rallying. Nothing, however, can be claimed with certainty.
When Sebastian Vettel left Formula 1, other drivers on the grid praised him and even made predictions on whether he may come back. Fans would be overjoyed to see him compete once more, whether it be in F1 or another racing series, given his enormous fan base.
