While playing Jenga in the paddock at Circuit of The Americas, Vettel and his F1 colleague, Schumacher, had a discussion over setting up a musical band.

The challenge is that every Jenga block has a question for either of them. And both would have to deliver an answer to the questions after safely retrieving the block out of the tower. So, here’s the question Vettel had to answer to.

Vettel and Schumacher reveal their choice for the F1 scenario

Mick started off by saying that he would choose Vettel for both playing the guitar and singing. “I’ll take you as the guitarist. Yes, you can guitar and sing,” the Haas driver said.

Vettel was not falling for the offer, as he hilariously replied, “No. Okay, you definitely haven’t heard me play the guitar or heard me sing.”

Lewis, probably yeah. We can take Lewis,” Mick affirmed.

Mick subsequently pointed out Ricciardo recently playing out a song. “He played out a song, or he was in the song,” Mick said. But nothing was going to change Vettel’s decision as the former Red Bull driver remained adamant that Ricciardo can’t sing.

Really? He can’t sing though,” the German concluded.
