Sebastian Vettel leaves Formula 1 at the end of one of the sport's most illustrious careers knowing he is as admired as a person off track as much as he is for his achievements on it.

The 35-year-old German ended his career with a 10th place and solitary point for Aston Martin at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix but that will not be what he remembers from his swansong weekend in a sport in which he has been a major figure for the past decade and a half.
