Vettel's New Hobby
Sebastian Vettel has taken up a strange new hobby ahead of the Japanese Grand Prix at the Suzuka Circuit. The former Formula One driver has been building "insect hotels" as part of a campaign to raise awareness for biodiversity.
Buzzin' Corner Campaign
The project, called Buzzin' Corner, involves the construction of 11 insect hotels on Turn Two at Suzuka. These structures offer a safe haven for insects, including bees, allowing them to seek refuge.
New Look for the Track
The campaign has not only introduced the insect hotels, but it has also given the track a fresh look. The kerbs on the inside of Turn Two have been painted in black and yellow stripes to resemble a bee.
Launch Event and Vettel's Excitement
A special launch event was held at the bug-filled hub, where Vettel invited drivers and bosses from various F1 teams to witness the project. In a video posted on Instagram, the four-time world champion expressed his excitement about the initiative and explained its purpose.
Vettel emphasized that the project aims to raise awareness about the importance of biodiversity. He hopes that this initial endeavor in Japan will lead to more similar projects worldwide, promoting habitats and spaces for insects and supporting biodiversity.
Japanese Grand Prix and Racing Fans
The Japanese Grand Prix is set to take place this Sunday, and racing fans are eagerly anticipating the action, following the thrilling Singapore Grand Prix last weekend.
Vettel's Passionate Cause
Vettel's involvement in building "insect hotels" stems from his personal connection to the cause. He strongly believes in celebrating and protecting the diversity of both human beings and nature.
Yellow and Black Kerbs
