Goethe on following in Vettel's footsteps

Speaking to Formula Scout, Goethe revealed his excitement at teaming up with the world champions.

“I am proud and excited to join the Red Bull Junior Team,” he said.

"They are a force to be reckoned with, breaking record after record.

“It hit me when I visited Milton Keynes and was faced with the wall of trophies from the floor to the ceiling. I realised then that I am about to become part of something very special.

"I grew up watching Sebastian Vettel winning races and championships in the Red Bull car, and as a German driver, I am proud to follow in his footsteps.

“Being part of an F1 team can provide me with priceless opportunities and open the door to the dream I’ve been working towards and there’s no better team to do it with.”

With Germany looking for it's next F1 talent, could Goethe rise to the occasion?
