Sebastian Vettel’s life will change forever once he crosses the finish line at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, and it will be there when he says goodbye to a brilliant career in which he has won four Formula 1 world titles since he did his debut in the 2007 season. During that journey he was at BMW-Sauber , Toro Rosso, Red Bull, Ferrari and Aston Martin, with whom he will conclude his stage in the highest category of motorsport.
Despite the fact that the German himself has expressed his desire not to spend each weekend in the different circuits as if it were a farewell, the organizers of the different tests have carried out different acts to give the four-time world champion a worthy farewell. At the United States Grand Prix, the Circuit of the Americas held an event in which they planted 296 trees in tribute to the 296 races that the German has contested to date.
“Leaving a mark, on and off the track,” his team wrote on social media. “An environmental initiative launched by Circuit of the Americas will see 296 trees planted throughout the ATX community in honor of the number of Formula 1 starts Sebastian will achieve in his final United States Grand Prix this weekend. name? Vettel Grove”.
The Aston Martin driver went to the North American track after knowing that they would pay him this beautiful tribute, and those responsible for the test renamed an area of the sports complex as ‘Vettel Grove’, with twenty of the trees planted there. As reported from the United States, the rest of the plantation will be in a grove in a nearby park to help restore the areas affected by flooding.
At 35 years old and with a family, the man from Heppenheim will leave the Great Circus starring in several actions in favor of the fight against climate change and minority social groups. During the Canadian Grand Prix, Vettel changed his usual helmet design for one with a message protesting the felling of trees in the country, in addition to going to the paddock on a bicycle with a protest shirt.
Before that, in Miami, the German wore another garment in which he wanted to show his fight against global warming, where you could read “Miami 2060, the first underwater grand prix, act now or nothing will be done later” .
