Sebastian Vettel, Melanie Fiona, 2012Sebastian 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?m used to,” said Vettel. “But music is without question an inspiration to many and I?m 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?s 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?ve been wanting to put out for a while so to have him involved was great.”

  1. He looked like a kid in a candy store.

  2. When i saw “R&B performer”, i didn’t hear “Are’n Bee” in my head, bur “Red Bull”…
    Is it serious Doc ???

    1. “but”, nor “bur”…

      Haha I know that feeling! For instance, everytime I see a “Colors of Benneton” store around I always get slightly disappointed that they are in fact selling clothes and not old F1 cars and Michael Schumachers.

  3. You can tell he’s struggling not to laugh in the film, and it’s really quite funny to watch

  4. Worst cameo appearance by an F1 driver ever, or THE WORST cameo appearance by an F1 driver ever?

    Why would Seb be racing a crappy Infiniti around inside an abondoned warehouse? What are all those people really up to in the warehouse? Why is Seb in America participating in activity of unknown legality?

    So many questions raised.
