A few years back, Sebastian Vettel starred in a short film filled with action. The shooting for the film took place at a place near Shanghai. The former Red Bull driver had to learn Martial Arts for the fight sequences in the film.
Vettel, during his Red Bull days, acted as a protagonist in the film “Drive of the Dragon“. A part of the film was uploaded by a fan on social media. The video portrays the four-time world champion showing off his martial arts skills. During the sequence, Vettel is seen fighting three people at the same time.
The shooting began in April 2012 and ended in as early as May. The film was also released the very same month through the Red Bull’s YouTube page on May 11.
The duration of the film is just over 5 minutes where Vettel can be seen wearing his Red Bull T-shirt the entire time. Later that year, Vettel won his third consecutive world championship title with the Red Bull.
Vettel has always remained an “all-rounder” in Formula 1. He has played multiple roles apart from a driver over the course of his career. In the last few years, the paddock has witnessed him play the role of an analyst. Vettel can be seen standing next to Mercedes’ cars where he goes around the car analyzing its bodywork after qualifying sessions and races.
He also has the ability to light up the atmosphere off track during press conferences. There are multiple instances where the Vettel can be heard joking around during interviews. Fans also witnessed Vettel play the role of a strategist during the Hungarian Grand Prix this year.
During the qualifying session at Sochi, Sebastian Vettel played the role of a Marshall. During a flying lap, Vettel lost his rear and ended up crashing into the wall. Seconds after his car came to a halt, Vettel jumped out of his cockpit.
It would have been normal had Vettel left the track. But that was not the case. Vettel went on to the track and cleared the debris and made a safer path for other cars to drive through.
