Brisbane, Nov 4: Formula One World Champion Sebastian Vettel has said that he does not believe he will be fined for celebrating his record-equalling seventh consecutive victory with a display of ‘doughnuts’ at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
According to the Courier Mail, the 26-year-old German was fined for performing doughnuts and leaving his Red Bull car after he clinched his fourth world title at last Sunday’s Indian Grand Prix.
However, he believes things will be different this time, the report said
Vettel said that he brought the car back and stuck to the rules, adding that he hoped they could provide a fuel sample because he burned some extra fuel.
Vettel’s dominant victory in Abu Dhabi matched compatriot Michael Schumacher’s record of seven successive wins with Ferrari in 2004, the report added.
Only Alberto Ascari has scored more, during the world championship’s Formula Two era in 1952-53, the report further said. (ANI)
