Sebastian Vettel celebrated his world championship triumph with a couple of ‘donuts’ on his victory lap at Suzuka, it has emerged.
The two smoky burn-outs were witnessed by the grandstand spectators at turns 1 and 2 but not the millions of television viewers, according to Germany’s Auto Motor und Sport.
“The FIA does not appreciate drivers senselessly burning fuel and tyres,” the magazine said.
The amateur footage, captured by a Japanese fan, can be seen at the video sharing website Youtube. Link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qxca4mBCuE8.
