A speech by Sebastian Vettel about Formula E – the championship for electric cars, did not go down well with the former champion in this class, Lucas di Grassi.

In an interview with German newspaper Zeit, Vettel condemned the electric formula technology and said he saw no point in it.

“I don’t understand the significance of Formula E. The battery technology that is used has nothing to do with what would be used in a normal car. It is not good for the environment because these batteries are not powered by renewable energy, but by fossil fuel,” said the Aston Martin F1 driver.

Brazilian driver De Grassi criticized Vettel for his words and questioned his commitment to the “green” idea.

“If Vettel doesn’t want to come to Formula E, that’s his choice. Although it’s the second most expensive race for single-seaters, it’s far behind Formula 1. But to say that car technology is irrelevant to the future. .. he either has no idea what he is talking about or is purposefully trying to deceive the public.

Vettel has been doing so much “green” stuff lately. He collects garbage, rides bicycles and so on. He seems to be doing it for the attention and not genuinely believing it. So even if he doesn’t like Formula E, he should support it,” de Grassi wrote.

Vettel has not yet decided what he will do with his future after the end of the season in Formula 1, which will be his last.

“It might sound boring, but I’ll probably want to take time for myself, think about everything and take it easy. I’ve been riding this busy rhythm for as long as I can remember. I want more time for myself, but I know that this won’t be for long either. I don’t stand still and something will emerge,” the German said recently.
