Vettel refuses to let setbacks break him

The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix marks the end of an era for Sebastian Vettel. After years of driving for Ferrari, he will join the Aston Martin team next year. Abu Dhabi will be Vettel's last race for the Scuderia.

It has been a tough year for Vettel and Ferrari as the pair have struggled for results. He did manage to get a podium in Turkey, the highlight in a tough season.

Still confidence in Vettel

Because of the way the four-time world champion has been sidelined by his team, you might think he doesn't trust anyone in the Formula 1 world anymore. But that's not the case.

"Trust is hugely important. It stands for team spirit, truth and correctness. You want to achieve something together, and trust is the basis of that. If you distrust each other, the path you want to take together would be a very long one," said Vettel in an interview with F1-Insider.com.

When Vettel made the move to Ferrari, he dreamed of following in the footsteps of Michael Schumacher. How does he look back on this?

"In the beginning, of course, you're disappointed because you didn't reach your goal. But in the end you only have two options to deal with it: It breaks you or you come back stronger. The first option is out of the question for me."
