Motorsport-Total.com - Helmut Marko can well imagine that Vettel will be involved in the management of Red Bull in F1 in the future: "It is not impossible that he will return in a top management position," Marko told Sky and hints: "I'm almost 80. That would be something!"

Apparently there was a conversation between Vettel and his former bosses at Red Bull on Saturday evening in Abu Dhabi. Motorsport-Total.com
The contact between the four-time world champion, who has won all four titles with Red Bull, and Marko and Christian Horner has never been broken since he left for Ferrari at the end of the 2014 season. Motorsport-Total.com
Although the conversation in Abu Dhabi was "just chatting", Marko said: "We had a discussion and I think if he could get a top position in management, that could appeal to him. But now let's just let him plant some trees and then we'll see what happens."
Marko is convinced: "He would certainly have the potential and he would have this personality for it." What Horner also signs: "He's one of those guys who is annoyingly good at everything they do. I'm sure if he chooses this career path, he would definitely be very good at it."
Horner believes that Vettel brings with him a very important quality that distinguishes a good team manager: "He knows people. He understands the value of people and he understands what contribution they make to success." Motorsport-Total.com
"It depends entirely on himself , which topics he would like to devote himself to now." Motorsport-Total.com
Vettel, in turn, cannot answer that himself at the moment. He keeps all options open and intends not to do anything for the time being: "This free run will be very exciting and interesting for me." Motorsport-Total.com
"Just having a little more time, not this fixed calendar anymore. But of course I'll have to do something at some point. I think once you're driven like that, it's always like that." Motorsport-Total.com
In principle, he can well imagine staying connected to motorsport in the long term, even if "no longer behind the wheel" and "in a different form". Motorsport-Total.com
In the short term, he does not rule out racing commitments outside of Formula 1. However, Vettel does not name specific racing series that are suitable for him. Motorsport-Total.com
"I've lived motorsport all my life. Closing the door now is of course tempting in a way, because then there's so much new and different waiting. But I can't ignore the fact that I put a lot of heart and soul into it motorsport and am very close to the sport," Vettel said.
Marko, on Sky Germany together with Vettel in front of the camera, grins: "We heard the message. We have two teams. We are open." Motorsport-Total.com
"But Sebastian, there is a serious difference: As top management, you have to be there earlier, leave later and get only a fraction of the money you are used to as a driver!" Motorsport-Total.com
Vettel grins: The thing with getting up early is no longer a problem since he was a father at the latest, & he can also “remember when the phone rang at 7 am in F3 & it said Marko then I thought to myself: 'Yes I'm not answering now and I'll sleep in!' And then called back later"
Team manager is "of course a completely different job. And it's true: As a driver you have to say at some point: 'It's over and now I need my rest.' Motorsport-Total.com
"Those are the hours when, of course, things keep rattling on in the background and there's always more to do to prepare for the next step. That didn't escape my notice." Motorsport-Total.com
