It is safe to say that Red Bull F1 endured their most successful phase in the F1 when Sebastian Vettel was behind the wheel. The German won four world championships driving from 2009-2013. Now the team has decided to honor him back by inducting Vettel into the Hall of Fame. 

The 33-year-old will be in the company of Niki Lauda and Jochen Rindt as he gets honored in the Milton-Keynes-based outfit factory. The German left Red Bull to drive for Ferrari after the end of the 2013 season. 

Now, Vettel begins a new chapter with Aston Martin after having left the Maranello-based team at the end of last season in the hoped of changing his horrendous 2020 season’s adventure and gaining back his pride. 

Sebastian Vettel into Red Bull F1 Hall of Fame 

Red Bull’s Helmut Marko and Dietrich Mateschitz are the reason that Vettel will get honored. In an interview with F1Insider.com, Marko said, “Jochen Rindt was the first Austrian to become world champion. Without him, there would have been neither the Austrian Grand Prix nor our great drivers. And probably also no Red Bull team.” 

One of the three new halls on the factory premises in Milton Keynes, which Red Bull needs for its future engine program, was called “Sebastian Vettel”. The other two are called “Jochen Rindt” and “Niki Lauda” reads the report. 

When asked about Red Bull’s gesture, Sebastian Vettel admitted to feeling proud. 

“That makes me a little proud,”, the 4 times World Champion said. 

“He was the initial spark for everything. Niki Lauda is Niki Lauda. You don’t have to tell much anymore. An icon. And Sebastian won four world titles with us. We wanted to honor that,” the Red Bull advisor concluded.
