2012 F1 season
Sebastian Vettel makes an appearance in the video for American R&B performer Melanie Fiona’s new song “Watch me Work”.
The two-times world champion appears alongside Fiona at the wheel of an Infiniti G37. The road car manufacturer is a sponsor of Red Bull and Vettel put his name to a special edition of the car earlier this year.
Here’s Vettel in the video:
The video was filmed in New Jersey while Vettel made a recent visit to the location of the 2013 Grand Prix of America.
“It was a great experience to shoot a music video, and certainly very different to what I?óÔé¼Ôäóm used to,” said Vettel. “But music is without question an inspiration to many and I?óÔé¼Ôäóm very proud to have been part of this. I think the lyrics are quite fitting to what we can all do if we put our mind to it.”
Fiona said: “It?óÔé¼Ôäós not often you get the chance to be driven by an F1 world champion and when the opportunity came up to have Seb driving me in the video I was like, yes please!
“This is one of my favourite songs and one that I?óÔé¼Ôäóve been wanting to put out for a while so to have him involved was great.”
