Sebastian Vettel reveals the best singer and dancer in Formula 1

Sebastian Vettel also named Kimi Raikkonen as the best person to host a house party.

Retired four-time World Champion Sebastian Vettel has given an insight into things other drivers are good at other than racing, during a Q&A with Red Bull Germany.

Vettel retired at the end of last season following a second season with Aston Martin, bringing a career which started back in 2007 to a close.

The 53-time race winner made his debut at the 2007 United States Grand Prix, after replacing an injured Robert Kubica at BMW-Sauber.

He went on to race full-time for Toro Rosso in 2008, before being promoted to the main Red Bull side in 2009 where he remained until the end of 2014.

Vettel claimed all four of his titles during his stint with Red Bull, after being victories in every season from 2010-2013.

Vettel replaced Fernando Alonso at Ferrari in 2015, where he failed to end the Maranello-based team’s wait for a championship.

The German ultimately left the Italians at the end of 2020, before completing two underwhelming seasons with Aston Martin.

He chose to retire to spend more time with his young family and watch his kids grow up not from the other side of the world with the F1 paddock.

Having been in the paddock for so long, the German has seen several drivers come and go, whilst he’s also discovered a lot of their personalities.

As a result, Vettel has seen a few hidden talents, with him jokingly revealing that 2007 World Champion Kimi Raikkonen would be the best house party host.

When Vettel was asked “who would throw the best house party?” the German replied, “Kimi.”

The Finn comically went straight to his yacht after retiring at the 2006 Monaco Grand Prix and was seen relaxing with his friends whilst the race was still going on.
