The World Champion visits the Ferrari team in Germany

Wiesbaden, 15th  July 2015. Formula 1 has paused for just three weeks, time enough for the Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel to visit the German-based Ferrari team in Wiesbaden. The four-time world champion arrived yesterday at the offices of Ferrari Central / East Europe GmbH to personally great the team responsible for the German, Austrian and Swiss markets.


 
After a very pleasant breakfast together, the 28-year-old then took the opportunity to drive a Ferrari California T around the Wiesbaden, Rheingau and Untertaunus regions. The V8 Gran Turismo flawlessly handled the curvy lanes that characterize the picturesque wine producing area of Hessen where a number of local residents were naturally pleasantly surprised to see the F1 champion driving by.
 
During his visit, Vettel said, “I really enjoyed my visit to the German Ferrari headquarters and the opportunity to get to know their team. Between races there is often no time for a visit, as I’m either training or at the Ferrari headquarters in Maranello for simulator and engineering work. Also we are involved in quite a lot of international events, so it was just a very nice opportunity to come to Wiesbaden yesterday for a change. At the same time it was great to get the opportunity to drive the Ferrari California T on the roads of my own home country too! I thoroughly enjoyed the turbo V8’s unending acceleration and the engaging engine sound that recalls Ferrari’s traditional, naturally-aspirated units”.

Inspired by the drive, he took the opportunity to show the team some of his skills with the fast and seamless gear changes of the California T, thoroughly enjoying the turbo V8’s unending acceleration and the engaging engine sound that recalls Ferrari’s traditional, naturally-aspirated units.

Jean-Philippe Leloup, Managing Director of Ferrari Central / East Europe GmbH said, “It was an absolute pleasure to host Sebastian Vettel here in Wiesbaden who clearly puts his heart, mind and soul into everything he does. He is an inspiration for our continued success. We really appreciate the time he took to meet the team who are responsible for making it all happen behind the scenes here”.
