Vettel prepared for BBC Question Time debut

Vettel prepared for BBC Question Time debut

Sebastian Vettel will join a panel of guests on the BBC political debate show, Question Time, in what the four-time F1 champion expects to be an "interesting" experience.

Alongside Lewis Hamilton, the Aston Martin driver has been the most vocal driver on the grid with regard to social issues.

Vettel's support of the LGBTQ+ community has been visible at a number of races with rainbow shirts and shoes worn and, most recently, the German donned a shirt warning of the dangers of global warming in Miami.

The shirt pictured a racing driver with a snorkel and read: "Miami 2060. First grand prix underwater. Act now or swim later."

Asked how the opportunity came about and what issues he hoped to highlight, Vettel said: "I don't know, I'm fairly open.

"But yeah, I think it's a different format and I'm looking forward to it. I think there's a lot that I can learn.

"Obviously, I have my opinion. I'm not saying it's always right or wrong. But yeah, I think it will be interesting because it will be a very different setting and probably different sorts of questions or topics to be spoken about.

"I'm fairly open at this point and it really was a coincidence, and I think it was an interesting, or it isn't an interesting opportunity, because it's just different and looking forward to it."

When is Vettel on Question Time?

Vettel will appear on Question Time on Thursday, May 12th, with the broadcast starting at 10:40 pm BST.
