Vettel: I don’t see myself as a TV expert

Sebastian Vettel

Four-time Formula 1 champion says he doesn’t foresee a future on television after retirement, suggesting he has other interests he wishes to pursue.

Set to depart Ferrari at the end of the 2020 season, it has been speculated the 33-year-old Vettel could retire from F1 completely if he is unable to find a competitive drive for 2021.

And while Vettel admits he doesn’t know what his future holds, he has ruled out a switch to TV punditry.

“I don’t see myself as a TV expert,” he told Sky Deutschland . “I like to talk, but I’m not sure I would be in good hands there.”

A presence in front of the cameras for well over a decade now, Vettel maintains he does not have the same flair for asking questions as he does answering them.

“I think it’s easier to give answers than to ask questions and keep track of where the conversation is going,” said Vettel. I don’t think it’s that easy, you have to prepare for it and so on. After a while you may better at it, but I don’t know.”

Additionally, Vettel says he has other plans outside the sport that would get in the way of such a gig.

“I have a long to-do list. Besides Formula 1, I have no time for anything, so the list is getting longer and longer, ” he explained.

” There is still a lot on the list. I have three children. It doesn’t make it easier to work through the list.”
