F1 feel-good Factor: Seb Vettel helps his team to pack up in India


After clinching this year’s driver’s world champion for the fourth time in a roll, many expected Sebastian Vettel to party like a champion. Where most people will picture Vettel celebrating in a typical F1 style featuring loud music, pretty ladies and lots of booze, the newly crowned world champion did something more humble. It seems the 26 year old German is actually a very nice guy (apart of the Malaysian GP incident, ahem).


Auto Motor und Sport correspondent Tobias Gruner stopped by the Red Bull garage to congratulate his countryman and Vettel responded he can’t shake his hand as his hands were dirty. It turns out that Vettel halted his celebrations to help his team mates pack up their items and equipment so that they would have more time to join him at the celebration party held at a hotel nearby. There was no rest for the team as the next race was a week’s away at Yas Marina in Abu Dhabi.


A Red Bull mechanic told a reporter: “I really wish people could see this side of the guy.” Well, now you have!
