Sebastian Vettel

The German racing giant also announced his retirement this year at the age of 35. In a 15-year period, Vettel drove for the best teams including Red Bull, Ferrari and Aston Martin, scoring 122 podiums in 299 races. With 53 victories and four consecutive titles (2010-2013), Vettel has proven himself to be a once-in-a-lifetime talent and has earned him numerous comparisons to F1 goat Michael Schumacher. He’s a good guy off the track, too; when he’s not helping Austrian kids build hotels for bees (seriously, look it up), he’s picking up litter at the British Grand Prix. Hopefully his post-game career will be a little more active than picking up trash, but honestly, if that’s his next move, we’ll be in it.
