‘F1 will perish & rightly so,’ says Vettel, predicting that the sport will die out if it continues to make environmental’mistakes.’
SEBASTIAN VETTEL believes Formula One would ‘rightfully go’ if it continues to make environmental’mistakes.’
The German is an environmentalist who believes F1’s time is running out if it does not modify its ways.
The four-time world champion, who drives for Aston Martin, believes that the emphasis is on executives to make changes to green engines and their long-term viability.
“Sure, and I think it’s valid because Formula One is not green,” Vettel said when asked if he fears the sport will die out.
“I believe we live in a period when we have the technology and potential to make Formula One green as well, without sacrificing any of the spectacle, excitement, speed, challenge, or passion.”
“We have so many smart individuals and engineering power here that we could come up with answers,” he says.
“However, I think the current regulations are incredibly fascinating; the (hybrid) engine is extremely efficient, but it’s worthless.”
“It won’t be an engine formula you can buy on the street in two years when you want to buy a new automobile, for example.”

“However, you might say, what is the significance?”
I believe that certain things being discussed for the future of the sport in terms of regulations have the potential to shift the change and shift into more meaningful changes.
“And I believe that if they come, it will be a positive thing for Formula One, as well as a necessary thing.”
“However, if they don’t show up, I’m not so optimistic.” I believe Formula One will vanish if they do not arrive. And probably for good reason.
“We’re at the point where we know we’ve made mistakes, and we don’t have time to make more.”
Vettel is a strong advocate for environmental initiatives in the paddock.
He was the driving force behind a flypast powered by alternative fuels during the Bahrain Grand Prix.
He also stayed behind at Silverstone to assist in the clean-up of the mess and litter left by the 140,000 people that attended the British Grand Prix.
