Aston Martin driver, Sebastian Vettel, stayed back after the British GP to help staff clean the grandstands after a return of spectators at Silverstone.
Vettel started the race on Sunday in eighth after moving up two positions during the inaugural sprint, but he was forced to retire on lap 40 after his Aston Martin suffered a cooling issue.
Speaking about his race, the German driver said; “The weekend was looking promising and, without all the problems, I should have finished well inside the points.
“I am very disappointed to lose the car in a wheel-to-wheel battle with Fernando Alonso.
“I am not sure exactly what happened, but I misjudged it, lost grip, and spun. After that, I was right at the back.
“In the end we did not finish the race because the team retired the car with a cooling issue.”
Despite the disappointing outcome of Sunday’s race, he was later seen clearing litter in the grandstands after the fans had left the circuit.
He donned black gloves and was carrying bags of rubbish as the environmentally-conscious driver did his part to help out.
He told reporters, “the race for the planet never ends.”
