F1 bosses – Mike Krack and Christian Horner – reckon Sebastian Vettel has the ability to be a team manager but it is not something he would do.

With nearly two months now since Vettel retired from F1, the German as promised is taking it slow regarding his future plans. He does of Race of Champions on his schedule but other than that, there is nothing yet lined up on the sporting side.

Considering the experience he has, Vettel will be perfect in many roles which includes being a team boss. His former bosses Aston Martin’s Krack and Red Bull’s Horner reckon the same that he will be good in those roles but they don’t think he will take it up.

“I don’t know if he wants to do that,” said Krack when asked about Vettel being a team boss. “But I think he has the personality and all the skills – human and also, I think the ones that are needed to do that. So I think he could be a good one, yeah.”

At the same time, Horner added: “I mean, he’s a great people person. He’s understands the value of people and the contribution that they make to success. And I think he’s turned into somewhat of a driver counsellor in the last couple of years as well.

“So it really depends what he wishes to apply himself to. He’s one of those guys that’s annoyingly good at anything he chooses to do. So I’m sure if he chose that path he would be very good at it.”
