The Chinese GP weekend is almost upon us and the buzz around the race is increasing. Earlier today, Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel was racing a fan on a simulator when things went very wrong for the German.
oh god Seb what are you doing ?

On the main straight, he suddenly lost control and spun off the track. He clouted the barrier and then tried to reverse back onto the track. Sebastian Vettel only succeeded in spinning further and nearly hitting the barriers on the other side.
The nightmare didn’t end there as he ran wide on the first corner and again, a little further into the lap. Luckily, he managed to stay on the tarmac for most of the lap, to his relief.
It was fortunate that those silly errors occurred only on the simulator and not on the real track. Or else, Sebastian Vettel would be left very very red faced.
