In the latest episode of the F1 podcast, Beyond the Grid, Sebastian Vettel returned to his six seasons as a Ferrari driver, where he arrived in 2015 with the goal of becoming world champion and succeeding Michael Schumacher, the hero of his childhood.
"I don't think I'll have any regrets looking back, said the German. Even if it is true that I failed in the mission that I had given myself: to become world champion with Ferrari. I did not succeed.

And then this project seems fun to me, I decided to be part of it. It is an incredible and very stimulating trip for the whole team. I hope I can bring her a lot, help her progress on and off the track. "
