Sebastian Vettel names Kimi as an ideal baking partner

Fan-favorite Seb is known for cheeky answers and a fun-loving attitude. A fierce racer on the track, Vettel is a whole new personality when not behind the wheel. The German has given some fun moments this season as well. Surely, one highlight was naming every F1 world champion in the sport’s history, after which many crowned him as the encyclopedia of the sport.

In another instance, when Vettel was asked to name his ideal baking partner, he chose ex-teammate Kimi Raikkonen, and the reasoning is hilarious. Vettel says he wants to be in full control and Kimi would be more than happy to do that.

“Kimi! He would leave me alone. I want to be in control and Kimi would be quite happy not to have anything to do with it. So he is my perfect partner,” said the four-time world champion.
