Vettel Appears In R&B Music Video

Double F1 world champion Sebastian Vettel stars in a music video with Double Grammy-winning US R&B star and protégé of Jay-Z, Melanie Fiona. Vettel drives an Infiniti G37 in Fiona's video 'Watch Me Work' featured below.



Vettel said "It was a great experience to shoot a music video, and certainly very different to what I’m used to, but music is without question an inspiration to many and I’m very proud to have been part of this. I think the lyrics are quite fitting to what we can all do if we put our mind to it."

Fiona said: "It’s not often you get the chance to be driven by an F1 world champion and when the opportunity came up to have Seb driving me in the video I was like, yes please!

This is one of my favourite songs and one that I’ve been wanting to put out for a while so to have him involved was great."
