In a break from the norm, Sebastian Vettel ditched the pressures of defending an F1 World Champion and took part in Red Bull's Soapbox Derby in Germany this past weekend. Whilst his team boss Christian Horner was in action in a Red Bull Racing themed car in the UK, Vettel opted for a different brand.

Calling himself Super Seb rather than the Mario alternative, Vettel sometimes wore a big black moustache and sometimes not, donned a bright red helmet and matching overalls, and powered his way down the track to great effect. He was only allowed a trip down the track as a demo, rather than as a participant, as the current F1 championship leader was part of the jury judging the other entrants to the soapbox event.
