26-year-old Sebastian Vettel is on the verge of his fourth Formula One world title, and his dominate performance in 2013, making the championship almost a foregone conclusion, has caused the coverage of his chase for history to shift to his musical tastes. After multiple sites posted photos comparing the superstar driver to Justin Bieber, Vettel was asked if he has any of the Canadian sensation’s music on his iPod’s pump-up mix.
The answer? No.
It’s music, yes, but it’s more like melodies. No singing. So no Justin Bieber. In the end, it’s not a secret, it’s just music that gets me or tries to get me in the zone so that I hopefully get the best out of myself (Reuters).
Whew, glad we have that cleared up.
Vettel will be racing at the Indian Grand Prix this weekend, and he only needs a fifth-place finish to mathematically guarantee himself the Formula One title. His closest competitor, Fernando Alonso, trails Vettel by an almost insurmountable 90 points.
