Sebastian Vettel’s Net Worth, Salary and Endorsements

Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel is a 4-time Formula One World Champion. He is among the most likable personalities on the grid. He made his Formula One debut in 2007 in a one-off appearance as a replacement for an injured Robert Kubica. The same year saw him join the ranks of the Toro Rosso team, effectively replacing Scott Speed. In 2008, he took his first victory, which still stands as the team’s only race victory. In 2009, he graduated to Red Bull F1 and stayed with the team until the end of 2014, before moving to Ferrari. His Red Bull stint saw him scale four back-to-back championships between 2010-2013.

Back in his Red Bull days, Sebastian Vettel’s helmet game was on another level. While the FIA has repealed its controversial helmet change rule, Vettel would turn up to Grand Prix events with some of the coolest lids on the grid.

Most recently, his iconic white helmet with the German stripes is easily recognizable and has become a classic helmet design on the grid.

Ferrari journey and contract

However, his Ferrari stint hasn’t been nearly as successful. Joining the team in early 2015, Vettel was the guiding light that Ferrari needed after a dismal 2014 season. One could argue that Vettel resurrected Ferrari in the turbo-hybrid era of Formula 1.

Despite getting off to a positive start, Sebastian’s Ferrari journey was full of ups and downs. He endured a difficult season in 2016 – scoring no wins and driving a car that wasn’t very competitive.

However, things changed in 2017.  the SF70h was more than a match for the Mercedes W08 and for the first time in the turbo-hybrid era, Ferrari could challenge Mercedes for the Championship.

While Ferrari and Vettel made good progress in the first half of 2017, the quest to end Mercedes’ domination fizzled in the latter half of the season. Mercedes made a big step up in car development. Furthermore, a series of reliability issues and driver mistakes effectively ended the Scuderia’s hopes of Championship that year.

But the team went back to the drawing board of developed a monster of a car for the 2018 season. The SF71h seemed destined to put an end to Mercedes’s winning streak, but a sequence of driver errors meant it was not to be.

Vettel came agonizingly close to clinching his first Championship with Ferrari in 2018, but his campaign fell apart towards the end of the season.

2019 was a difficult season for the German driver. Vettel had to put up with a younger, much faster teammate in Charles Leclerc while racing in a car that was uncompetitive and unsuited to his driving style. Scoring only a single win, Sebastian ended the season fifth in the Drivers’ Championship.

The equation between Vettel and teammate Charles Leclerc gave the team enough troubles.

The 2020 season was put on hold due to COVID-19 but Vettel dropped a bombshell regarding his future at Ferrari. Sebastian Vettel officially announced that he and Ferrari would not be renewing their contract for 2021 and beyond. At the end of the  2020 season, Vettel and Ferrari will part ways.

While the season isn’t done yet, Vettel can look back at his time with Ferrari with pride. The German currently sits third in the list of all-time wins for the Scuderia. Only behind F1 legends – Michael Schumacher and Niki Lauda.

So far, Vettel has scored 12 Pole Positions and clinched 14 wins for Ferrari.

Personal life

Sebastian Vettel prefers keeping his personal life away from all the glitz and glamor of F1. Nobody knows a lot about his private life, but there are a few details.

The 32-year-old married his childhood friend Hanna Prater in 2019. He has 3 kids – Emilie, Mathilda, and a son born in November 2019.

The 4-time World Champion lives in a medieval-style farmhouse in Thurgau, Switzerland. Vettel isn’t one to splurge on flashy mansions, but his house is impressive nonetheless!

The German driver has an enviable vintage motorcycle collection and often arrives at circuits on one of his cool bikes. However, he also owns a very cool car collection which, funnily enough, includes a Mercedes.
