Sebastian Vettel wants an environmentally friendly Formula 1: "Greta is an inspiration"


Sebastian Vettel (33) has long discovered his heart for environmental issues and pays attention to a sustainable lifestyle. He would like to see more of this thinking in his work environment.

In an interview with the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, the man from Heppenheim asks: "Where is the pioneering role of Formula 1 in the field of technology?"

Vettel is not happy about the rejection from his colleagues to climate activist Greta Thunberg: "Greta Thunberg is the person who has gained so much profile with the" Fridays for Future movement."

Instead, he praises the activist: “Seen from the outside, she exemplifies her convictions every day. That's an inspiration. But I don't see her condemning others who don't live like her. "

Vettel believes that the premier class gambled away its importance for the future: "The seriousness of the situation is not understood in any case. I find that frustrating. We know better and still don't do anything. This is how we seal our disappearance into irrelevance. "

His approach: "Create incentives for beneficial innovations instead of clinging to the old things just because they continue to pour a lot of money into some people's pockets, bring fame and respect."

The four-time world champion, who is moving from Ferrari to Aston Martin in the coming season, is setting a good example himself, collecting rubbish, for example, when he finds it on the street. He also does that in the Formula 1 paddock.
