Oct.19 - Sir Jackie Stewart says he will be "happy" once Sebastian Vettel decides to hang up his helmet.

Quadruple world champion Vettel has admitted that if he hadn't landed the Aston Martin seat for 2021, he would have quit.

"If he wants to continue racing, it's only because he loves the sport so much," triple world champion and F1 legend Stewart, 81, told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"Sebastian Vettel is a really nice gentleman who has had a wonderful career, so personally I would be happy if he retired and did what I do.

"He could go to some of the best events and get involved with the best multinational corporations. Vettel would be a great ambassador for the sport," he insisted.

    I agree that Vettel is a great guy and has done a lot to keep F1 in limelight.No other driver of his generation has created such media interest .I am convinced that there is so much more to come from Seb and we can only imagine what he has on his mind when he joins Aston Martin next year! Perhaps he will one day be running the team as we all know he is a great strategist ?

    OK, I have resisted accepting it, but JYS is losing it......maybe dementia. When did the arrogant punk waving his finger in the air become a "really nice gentleman"?
