After a remarkable 16-year career in F1, the four-time world champion driver bid farewell to the sport at the close of the 2022 season.
While savouring his well-deserved retirement, Vettel has candidly admitted that there's one element he misses more than anything else: the adrenaline rush that racing uniquely provides.
As discussions and speculations about his future continue to swirl, a potential return to the F1 grid in 2026 with Audi looms as a potentially captivating option.
This prospect could see the seasoned German driver embark on a slightly more long-term endevour, extending his racing career into his 40s - reminiscent of his hero, Michael Schumacher, who famously made a comeback with Mercedes four years after retiring.
Rosberg, a world champion himself in 2016 before retiring at the end of that season, has offered his take on the Vettel comeback links.
