    … What will Sebastian Vettel name his RB7?

    So far we’ve had Julia (his Toro Rosso), Kate, Liz, Mandy and Daisy. Assuming he carries on the sequence – Daisy was out of sequence because the wide yellow nose on the upgrade he got reminded him of Daisy Duck – that means it’s time for a name starting with ‘N’.

    There’s a few things I’ve noticed about the way Vettel names his cars. First of all, he tends to go in for Anglican names rather than Germanic. No doubt there are Kates and Liz-es in Germany, but the spelling has always been the Anglican spelling. Secondly, he tends to go in for the diminiutive of a name. Kate is short for Katherine, Liz is short for Elizabeth, and Mandy is short for Amanda. And starting with Liz (not so much Julia or Kate), he tends to go in for alliteration or sime kind of rhyming sound.

    With that in mind, I reckon he’s go three choices in mind: Natalie, Nicole and Nikki. Of the three, I reckon Nikki is most in line with his naming trends, and it also opens up a whole heap of rhymes to work with that you just don’t get with the other two. Like, say, Sticky Nikki. Or maybe Tricky Nikki. Or even Quickie Nikki (because she’s fast!).

    What do you guys reckon?

    Fancy Nancy?

    Or perhaps, seeing his car with the number 1 on the front for the first time, he’ll go for Wanda :)

    Well…an awful lot of thought has gone into this!

    I honestly have no idea…

    Maybe the #1 on the front will suffice.

    Nicely done Ned! Salad Fingers references are always class.

    It was the first chassis he got after Melbourne last year. He wrote the original Kate off in that collision with Robert Kubica. Red Bull rebuilt the chassis and added some upgrades. She was “faster and meaner” than the original Kate, so he renamed her.
