Four time Formula 1 world champion, Sebastian Vettel, has been looking forward to racing in the Nations Cup. Sebastian has won the championship seven times in his career and six times in succession with the legend Michael Schumacher for Germany and one individually in 2015.

Vettel came out all guns blazing during the championship where he handled four different vehicles in vintage style before losing to nine time champion Sebastian Loeb. There is absolutely no shame in losing to such a class opponent. He can hold his head high.

The Aston Martin driver, Vettel, was asked in one of the interviews on whether the world could see him entering the Extreme e series in future or even the Dakar Rally. He clarified that anything is possible and he is counting that out.

He further added, “Obviously, you saw I’m still missing a little bit,” said, quoted by The Race. “But I think I enjoy it a lot,” he added.

Very much like Formula 1 or any category, there’s a lot of work behind the scenes, doing your pace notes and getting all the information you can, the same with us preparing the race and the analysis after. The sport progresses and there’s more to it than just driving, which is also a challenge. So for sure it’s not easy to just jump into it and be very good at it,” he continued.

You need the time and experience, but if someone is willing to give me a shot and a chance and has a lot of time, I’m happy to look at it,” said Vettel.

One of the reasons was also why Sebastian enjoyed this experience more than before the change in venue of the event to Monte Carlo from previous years.

After missing the Race of Champions the last two years and having the pandemic around the world, it was great to be back and great to have a sense of normality as well, as much as it was possible,” added the 34-year-old.

“It was a very, very great comeback, and I would really like to come back to a place like this on snow and ice,” as reported by Planet F1

It was refreshing to see the former Formula 1 champion on a different track but still producing the goods in vintage Sebastian Vettel style.
