Singapore, Vettel’s stronghold

The last three years of Sebastian Vettel They have not been the best of the German driver in Formula 1. After a disappointing 2020 in ferrari with an SF1000 that didn’t measure up and two seasons in Aston-Martin with few joys, the four-time world champion will withdraw from the big circus at the end of this 2022.

In these three seasons, the German has only been on the podium twice. His last triumph was in 2019 on the streets of Singapore, next city that Formula 1 visits, and which marked the relegation of both Vettel and Ferrari. The lights of Marina Bay saw the then pilot of the team make a ‘undercutabout his partner Charles Leclerc, who came from getting two consecutive victories in Spa and Monza in his first season dressed in red.

That Sebastian Vettel’s last triumph so far came in the Lion City it’s not by chance. The four-time champion lives an idyll every time he visits the Asian republic, since he is the driver with the most victories on the urban circuit (five), the only track where the German holds that record. In the twelve occasions that he has competed there, He has only had one abandonment, and in the other eleven races he has always scored points, so Singapore may be the last joy of the German driver in Formula 1.

After two years off the schedule due to the pandemic, the small Asian country returns to the ‘Great Circus’, and at Aston Martin they are hopeful that Vettel will say goodbye to his stronghold with a good result. “In Singapore he has always done great, so we expect him to get something very good from here to the end”, says Mike Krack, Silverstone team boss. And it is that Marina Bay may be the best opportunity for Sebastian Vettel to say goodbye in a big way to Formula 1.
