The German pilot, 35 years old, ranks third on the list of all-time Grand Prix winners, with 53 winsbehind only Lewis Hamilton (103) and Michael Schumacher (91).

“But today is not about saying goodbye. Rather, it is about saying thank you, to everyone, especially the fans, without whose passionate support Formula One could not exist,” concluded Vettel.
