Sebastian Vettel announced his retirement from Formula 1

Four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel has announced that he will retire from Formula 1 at the end of the 2022 season.

After making his debut in 2007, Vettel won four consecutive world championships for Red Bull between 2010 and 2013, the first of which made him the youngest title winner in the sport.

The 35-year-old German, who spent six seasons at Ferrari after joining the Italian team in 2015, will see out the end of his final campaign at Aston Martin.

With 53 victories, Vettel is currently third in the list of all Grand Prix winners, behind only Lewis Hamilton and Michael Schumacher.

“The decision to retire was difficult for me to make and I spent a lot of time thinking about it,” said Vettel, who confirmed his retirement in a video posted on Instagram on Thursday.

“At the end of the year, I want to give myself more time to think about what I will focus on next, it is very clear to me that as a father I want to spend more time with my family.
