Sebastian Vettel finished the second Free Practice Session at 6th and Charles Leclerc finished 4th on the timesheets. After the session came to an end, Sebastian Vettel was heard on the radio making a famous pop culture reference.

“It is what it is”– a popular culture reference indicating one just accepting their own fate. Sebastian Vettel stood at P11 at the end of the first practice. However, after a P6 in the second practice, when Sebastian Vettel heard on the radio “we take what we get”.

He immediately responded with the pop culture reference and accepted a P6, which considering this season was more than adequate.

Vettel is known to be a funny guy. We all remember his hilarious speech at the 2011 Autosport awards. Moreover, his impersonation of Kimi Raikkonen and comments about the event.

Yesterday, towards the end of free practice, Vettel was seen making a pop culture reference and went viral on TikTok.

Sebastian Vettel on the Portimao track

The German has never driven on the track. But on the morning of free practice, Vettel went on a traditional track walk. He stated, “I was also at Maranello and drove the track on our simulator and I have to say I found it very interesting.

“Now I’m curious to get on track and try it for myself and see what it’s like to drive with its blind corners, adverse camber and heavy braking points. I believe everyone is doing everything possible to allow me to give it my best, even if the car is undoubtedly difficult to drive.

Vettel further added, “I think therefore that Charles is doing a great job, given he has managed to squeeze the maximum out of the SF1000 every time.” 

Sebastian Vettel is calling curtains to his chapter with Ferrari. His new team is looking forward to hosting a World Champion in their car. The duo of Aston Martin and Sebastian Vettel is surely going to make a huge impact.
