Sebastian Vettel is in the Formula 1 for 16 years now. However, in the last hours the German stood out in the Race of Champions, where he reached the final and fell to Sébastien Loeb. This began to open up the possibility of venturing into other categories, something that the four-time world champion seriously thinks about: “I’m going to study it”.

This Sunday he was able to be competitive with other types of cars and this left him very satisfied. “I had to catch up. Obviously it was seen that I still have a bit to go, but I think I enjoy it a lot”.

On the TheRace website, Vettel assured that he had a lot of fun at the event that took place in Sweden this weekend. “It is a very different discipline. So I had a great time. With a car, but there are differences. It’s fascinating, we had a conversation to understand a little more, it’s not just being in the car and driving.

Finally, the German assured that he is seriously thinking about opting for a type of rally or jumping to another category in the coming years. “As in Formula 1 or in any other category, there is a lot of work behind. Take notes on your pace and get as much information as you can, the same as us preparing the races and post-race analysis.”

“The sport advances and there are more things than just driving, which is also a challenge. So it’s not just getting on and being good. You need time and experience, but if someone wants to give me a try and the opportunity and has a lot of time, I will study it, without a doubt”, commented the German to finish. This year, Vettel has one of his last opportunities in Formula 1.
