F1 News: The Best Fan Reactions To Sebastian Vettel On BBC Question Time

Aston Martin driver Sebastian Vettel appeared on BBC Question Time as he discussed the environmental impact of Formula 1, and his guilt that accompanies this. This comes only a week after he wore a T-shirt in Miami, highlighting the rising of sea levels around Florida.

“It’s my passion to drive a car. Every time I step in the car, I love it,” he told the panel.

“When I get out of the car, of course I’m thinking as well: ‘Is this something we should do, travel the world, wasting resources?'”

He continued:

“We need to stop being dependent [on fossil fuels], and we can, because there are solutions in place,” Vettel said.

“You know, in Britain, you have this sort of goldmine you’re sitting on, which is wind, and you have the ability to increase your energy supply with wind power, solar.

“Every country has its strengths and weaknesses.

“If you go to Austria, they have the Alps and they have water, they can pump it up, store it, take it back down.

“It’s something that I’m asking myself. There’s certain things that are in my control, and certain things are not.

“There’s things that I do because I feel I can do them better. Do I take the plane every time? No, not when I can take the car. But there’s certain things in my control, and certain things outside.”

Fans have exploded with admiration as they stand behind what Vettel had to say. Here are our favourite reactions:
