Red Bull has already produced the t-shirts to mark Sebastian Vettel’s 2011 world championship victory.
Although Jenson Button is still mathematically in with a chance of winning the championship, Vettel needs just a single point to wrap up his second consecutive drivers’ crown.
And according to the Bild-Zeitung daily, Red Bull has jumped the gun by producing a run of white t-shirts bearing Vettel’s logo and the words “2011 F1 drivers’ world champion”.
It will be sold for EUR 29.95, Bild added.
Actually, however, the 24-year-old is highly superstitious and refusing to count on his title victory until it is definitely in the bag.
“Statistically the chances are on our side but generally in sports there have been a lot of stories written, and this one also has to wait to be closed,” he said.
Swiss newspaper Blick reports that Vettel and his parents Norbert and Heike therefore hosted a “One-Point-Missing-Party” in the Singapore paddock late on Sunday.
One interesting attendee was Luca Colajanni, the Ferrari team spokesman.
