Formula 1 | Sebastian Vettel wishes to meet Greta Thunberg


The four-time Formula 1 world champion Sebastian Vettel accepts that it is more difficult for him to win in the Aston Martin than in other racing cars in the past.

“I still want to win. And yes: It annoys me that it is no longer so easy for me today. But fortunately I am a little more mature and can deal with many things better,” said the 34-year-old in an interview with the “Süddeutsche” Newspaper”.

Vettel on Thunberg: “A real role model”

Vettel has been campaigning for a long time that the classic combustion engine in Formula 1 should be replaced by a sustainable drive as soon as possible in view of climate change. A meeting with climate activist Greta Thunberg would therefore please him very much. “We probably share a lot of views when it comes to Formula 1. I think it’s great. It’s encouraging that it is fighting for our future with such determination. A real example that the whole world should follow and, above all, older men should be more listened to should give, “said Vettel.

He therefore strongly criticized the Formula 1 racing calendar. “Financial interests shouldn’t be the top priority here. Rather, the planning should make sense. We shouldn’t fly from east to west or north to south, but rather check out stations that are already close together,” said Vettel. “Banning plastic on the grandstands and in the paddock can also make a big difference. Of course, that wouldn’t save the world. But it’s about setting an example and showing that it is possible without it.”
