GEPA-0111084479ONE rising F1 star (hint hint) revealed at the Chinese Grand Prix this weekend that he names his racing cars after girls.

The driver admitted to the BBC’s Martin Brundle that he likes to treat women well, and he also likes to treat his cars well, hence he names his cars after the ladies.

The mystery driver said:

“Like a ship, a car should be named after a girl as it’s sexy. My original car was called Kate. But then it got smashed at the opening race in Australia. So we called this one Kate’s Dirty Sister because it is more aggressive and faster.”

Who’s the driver? Answer after the click:

Congratulations if you answered Sebastian Vettel, because it was indeed the young German who drive “Kate’s Dirty Sister” to victory for Red Bull Racing in China on Sunday; no doubt Vettel will be treating Kate’s sister very well from now on.
