Sebastian Vettel has undoubtedly had the worst season of his F1 career. Evidently, it cannot get any worse from here and we hope it does not. However, humility is an ethic rooted so deep in his personality that even after all his troubles at Ferrari, he is the coolest pilot on track.

The German seldom loses his cool. The gift of a calm and composed demeanor is the best element in the 33-year-old. No matter what be the surrounding crisis, he never disrespects his fellow teammates or anyone around him. He may not be winning races now, but he has been winning hearts for a long now.

He has left his nightmares back at Ferrari and is currently looking to regain his lost motivation at Aston Martin. With the 2021 season drawing close every moment, the four-time champ is filled up with the thrill of racing under the English umbrella. Hopefully, he finds his form back.

While his performance during his last season failed to impress spectators, he captivated everyone with his behavior. His conduct was so commendable that F1 has compiled an entire video of Sebastian Vettel being absolutely charming.

 

After he crashed on track, the German got out of his car to pick up the debris. “The session was still going on. So I wanted to make sure I cleared the track. If you leave a mess, normally you take care of it as well and try to clean up.

“Give your sound guy some bit of your umbrella, Johnny. He is completely soaked,” said Vettel, during an interview before a rainy race.

These were some of his random acts of kindness that won over fans.
