Well, following the checkered flag, the four-time world champion and his crew marched onto the empty grandstands to clean up the garbage left by the spectators. As a result, a huge British crowd swarmed the empty ranks to appreciate the Germans who play a role in pursuing a clean environment.

Why Vettel decided on the garbage collection campaign

In an interview with Bild, Vettel spoke about why he decided to clean up the rubbish in the grandstands after the race at Silverstone.

“It is important that we all respect the environment and not rely on other people to clean up behind us. Together we can make a difference, ”said the Aston Martin driver.

After collecting the garbage, the German will apparently drive to a garbage incineration plant to create awareness of what happens to the garbage left behind. In addition, he is also interested in helping the world work out how to avoid more waste.

Aston Martin also shared a thank you post for the world champion on social media. They wrote, “Sunday night at Silverstone. The British Grand Prix is ​​over, but the race to save the planet never ends for Seb. “
