The third-most successful driver in F1 history in terms of wins, Vettel has a huge voice in the sport, and isn’t afraid to use it.

Regularly using his platform for good causes, particularly environmental support, the 36-year-old German was driving the famous Sussex hillclimb in cars running on fully-sustainable fuels.

And when asked if he could see a future working with either F1, or its governing body the FIA, he said: “We’ll see, I have some ideas.

“I went to the Monaco Grand Prix earlier this year. I had a very good meeting with [F1 president] Stefano Domenicali.”

He then hinted that a future role would focus on sustainability in the sport.

Vettel added: “Other than obviously the cars directly polluting, F1 has a huge responsibility because it’s a very big event.

“A lot of people attend, I think you had around 500,000 people in the British Grand Prix last weekend. So there’s a lot more to it than just the cars but obviously the cars, everybody sees them.

“It’s important that it’s headed in the right direction. But I’m talking [with F1] and I have some ideas. Obviously, we’ll see what the future brings.”
