Sebastian Vettel had his worst F1 season last year with Ferrari. He claimed only 33 points and finished in the P13 position. The German moved on to Aston Martin for 2021 as many believe it to be a step towards retirement; however, Nico Rosberg has a much different opinion.
The former F1 champion talked about F1 racing in an interview. He talked about his motorsport racing as a whole, the drivers, and Formula E. He also gave his opinion of Sebastian Vettel and what the 2021 season looks like for the German.
“Sebastian needed a change. He was in a negative spiral at Ferrari, which was no longer a nice experience in the end. I am happy that he has now found a new opportunity.”
“At Aston Martin he will be the hero again and will be celebrated. With a success he can be the same again. He’s still one of the best of all time,” Rosberg explained.

The quadruple champion brings immense experience and knowledge to the team. Team principal, Otmar Szafnauer, shares that Vettel is already involved with the team and helping Aston Martin with the process of making a comeback after six decades.
“He has already instructed our race engineers on which data he needs to help us with the car set-up. He’s already helped us to improve the ergonomics in the cockpit. For example, where the switches should go and how they should be used to make the car easier to operate,” he explained.
Aston Martin has stated earlier that they are excited to host the multiple world champion. Vettel, at the same time, is looking forward to making a comeback. After a woeful 2020 season, the German’s fans are waiting to see the champion rise again.
