Vettel holidays on Ecclestone’s yacht

Reigning champion and 2011 title leader Sebastian Vettel has this week been holidaying with Bernie Ecclestone.

Bild newspaper published a photograph of the 24-year-old Red Bull driver waterskiing off the coast of Croatia, near F1 chief executive Ecclestone’s yacht ‘Petara’.

The amateur photographer said: “I had no idea who I was photographing – I was just trying out a new lens!”

Vettel will return to work on Monday, when he drives in Red Bull’s F1 simulator in Milton Keynes.
