  1. I guess it will take until I’ve learned Chinese completely before Andrew fixed that ricecooker of a car

  2. Seb: “Perfect!”
    Man: “You just wrote that Ricciardo is faster than you.”

  3. “Our system of writing is also art… Your brush strokes are fast on the curves but much too slow on the straights. May I suggest using this brush instead?”
    “But it’s got a Mercedes logo on it!”

  4. “Sebastian tries to one up Fernando by writing his samurai quotes in authentic language”

  5. Vettel: “So what do these characters mean?”
    Man: “Multi 21 Seb”

  6. Seb to Master: “It’s a calligraphic message to my teammate.”

    Master to Seb: “[reading, softly…]Hmm…’Daniel, SEBASTIAN is faster than you‘? Who’s ‘Daniel‘?”

    Seb to Master: “Exactly…”

    note to @keithcollantine:

    inspiration =


    In this short film Sebastian Vettel wanders around the old streets of Beijing. He wanders into the home of one of the best calligraphy masters from China who teaches Sebastian the art of writing his own name in Chinese. The film aims to draw parallels between the Formula One World Champion’s strong virtues of persistence, dedication and pursuit of his art, much like the art of Chinese calligraphy…

  7. Translation: I miss you Webber. Please come back.

  8. We are fuked.

  9. If only it had more downforce I might be better at this.

  10. “Hurry up, Seb! Ricciardo’s already done 4…”

    Headline: many see New FIA mandated pit boards as another ill considered move to entice the Asian market.

  12. Man: Hope you get a chance to actually show the “vettel finger” this year and not just do its painting.

  13. Desperate to win, Vettel signs a contract with Red Bull Emgrand for the remainder of 2014.

  14. Reigning F1 world champion Sebastian Vettel refines his understanding of the new 2014 technical regulations.

  15. SV : “Looks like RB Management forgot who is the world champion. Anyways they are not understanding in English, Let me try in Chinese. Hey Kungfu Master, sorry Paint Master : I think these are small letters, those RB guys don’t mind it. I want Chinese Capital Letters. TOUGH LUCK, I AM THE WORLD CHAMPION”

    I don’t understand Sebastian, you’re teammate is beating you!
    ‘Oh it’s just a sign of the times.’

  17. Man: Ancient art of calligraphy requires time and patience
    Vetted: You should try working with Renault

    1. @murryporker, lol, good one!

  18. Not smooth enough to decrease tyre wear, Seb!

  19. Seb:
    “Over one billion people? You have something similar to twitter, don’t you? Let’s make this hashtag work #bringbackmarkwebber”
