How Sebastian Vettel signed out of Formula 1 on a high

Two difficult years at Aston Martin proved a tricky coda to a great Formula 1 career for Sebastian Vettel. But the four-time world champion emerged from his final F1 season with dignity intact and ended his time in grand prix racing as he started it - in the points

Sebastian Vettel in Formula 1: four world titles, 53 wins, 57 poles, 3098 points, 299 races, and out. That's if Lewis Hamilton's point that "Formula 1 has a way of sucking you back in" doesn't come true and there is no Michael Schumacher or Fernando Alonso-style comeback in Vettel's future.

Even though he says he'd be up for a one-off appearance at Suzuka, it doesn't seem very likely, because Vettel's 2022 campaign featured two main elements: his decision to retire at the end of a tough first half with Aston Martin; and then a farewell tour second.
