Sebastian Vettel reveals which single trophy he has on display

Sebastian Vettel has refused to rule out a future return to Formula 1, despite retiring just months ago.

Retired four-time World Champion Sebastian Vettel has revealed that his first Drivers’ Championship trophy is the only award he has on display in his house, with the rest being in a room.

Vettel’s first title famously claim in 2010, where three drivers entered the season finale in Abu Dhabi still mathematically in the championship fight.

Fernando Alonso led the standings, whilst Red Bull’s Mark Webber and Vettel sat eight and 15 points behind respectively.

However, Vettel overcame his deficit to win his maiden title by four points over Alonso, after claiming the victory at the Yas Marina Circuit.

His 2010 title glory was the first of four consecutive championships, as the German went onto win the crown again in 2011, 2012 and 2013.

His 2011 and 2013 titles came in dominant fashion, whilst he duelled with Alonso again in 2012, another championship which went down to the season finale.

It’s his 2010 title which seemingly means the most to him though, with that being the only one he displays in his house.

“In my home, I don’t have a single – I have one trophy in the house, which is the world championship in 2010,” Vettel told Sky Sports Germany.

“Then I have a room where all the trophies are and I managed to tidy it up this year and put everything in place, because it was just in boxes and put to the side.

“I did have a little bit of time the last couple of years because I didn’t get much more new trophies!”

The 53-time race winner enjoyed a glittering career from 2007-2022, although Red Bull advisor Dr Helmut Marko doesn’t think it’s over just yet.

Marko believes Vettel’s time as an F1 driver isn’t done and dusted, with a return having not been ruled out by the driver himself.

Going back to Red Bull has been ruled out by Marko though, with the Austrians not having space for their former driver.

It’ll take an offer from a top team to get Vettel back in the cockpit competitively, something which could come in the form of Audi in 2026.

Audi are reportedly keen to have a German driver for their maiden F1 campaign, with some suggesting that Vettel could be on their radar.
