Many athletes who spend their whole lives in sports after retirement have to imagine at least once what it would be like to come back again. Of course, when you do something for a long time to create a habit, in addition to sports, many people get into the habit of doing their work.

Not infrequently, famous athletes came back from retirement. Some came back because they were bored in retirement and some because they needed money. These days, the possibility that the legendary German Sebastian Vettel will return for the next Formula 1 season is being mentioned more and more.

Vettel (36) won four titles in F1 with the Red Bull team in his career, and achieved 53 victories. In his career, he drove for Sauber, Toro Rosso, Red Bull, Ferrari and Aston Martin. The German made his last appearance in F1 last year at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Nothing is official yet, but Vettel claims that he really wants to come back

"So far nothing has been signed or decided, but I have it in my head. I still have time to decide. If at some point I decide that it will not go without racing, then I will drive again," said Vettel.

Among other things, he said that he did not regret retiring, but that it took him a little time to want to race again. Some advised him to drive the car on certain tracks, but he developed too much love for the formula. It's no wonder considering how long he's been competing.

He pointed out that he does not want to talk much in public about a possible return to F1 until he makes a definitive decision. "I stopped driving for many reasons. I enjoy being home with my family. There are some other things that worry me now, but it also makes me optimistic when I see the show that other people put on, how they dedicate their time and lives to a certain purpose.

At this moment, one 'bubble' is shrinking, and many doors are opening. Maybe at some point it would be good to think about returning to that 'bubble,'" Vettel pointed out.
