Sebastian Vettel Issues Warning: ‘Formula 1 Will Disappear’

Sebastian Vettel

This season has seen Sebastian Vettel prove he practices what he preaches, with the four-time World Champion often flying on commercial airlines, setting up bee hotels, and picking up trash after races.

However, the German ace has issued a dire warning, saying Formula 1 will disappear if it doesn’t become more environmentally friendly in the coming years…

“I think we live in a time where we have innovations and possibilities to arguably make Formula 1 green as well, and not lose any of the spectacle, of the excitement, of the speed, of the challenge, of the passion.

“If anything, we have so many clever people and engineering power here, we could come up with solutions. But the current regulations, I think they’re very exciting, the engine is super efficient, but it’s useless.

“It’s not going to be an engine formula that you will buy on the road in two years when you decide to buy a new car, for example.

“But if they don’t come, I think I’m not so optimistic. If they don’t come, I think that Formula 1 will disappear. And probably rightly so.

“We are at the stage where we know we’ve done mistakes, and we have no time to keep doing mistakes.”
