The four-time world champion wanted to call it quits on his career at Aston Martin to spend more time with his family.

But fast forward to today, the German superstar is still open to getting back on the track.

When his career ended Vettel said that “You should never say never” to a comeback.

And recently the ex-Ferrari driver has been linked to a cockpit return for the 2025 season.

“When I left the sport at the time, I said that you never know if you might make a comeback.


“But the intention wasn’t for me to stop and then start again.”

On Monday Vettel was spotted behind the wheel again as he took part in a test for Porsche’s endurance team in Aragon, Spain.

He continued: “It was quite funny. I was just curious to see how such a car works and it was exciting to see.

“Of course, it was a bit of an adjustment to a Formula 1 car and after a year and a half I was maybe a little rusty.”


But for now Vettel will remain retired until the right opportunity comes calling for him.
