“I’ve loved working with the team, getting to know different people and different approaches,” Vettel said. “These two years have been very challenging because I wasn’t familiar with running at the back of the field. It has been a new experience, tough at times.”

Sebastian Vettel has been a constant figure on the formula 1 grid since 2007. Not only is he one of the most successful drivers in the sport’s history, but he is also one of the most loved and respected drivers. Before the race weekend in Abu Dhabi, all 20 drivers united for a special dinner to bid the German racer farewell from the sport.

The Formula 1 championship is a foregone conclusion with Max Verstappen clinching the title on of the most one-sided seasons in recent years. However, Verstappen did not let Sergio Perez finish 6th in Brazil, costing the Mexican two points. Perez Charles Leclerc of Ferrari are locked in battle for second place, with Red Bull in team history has never gone 1-2 in the standings.
