Fabian Vettel, the brother of Scuderia Ferrari‘s German driver Sebastian, is currently taking his first steps in the world of professional motor racing. The 2017 Formula One championship leader’s 18-year-old brother Fabian has made his debut in the Audi Sport TT Cup, according to recent reports in the German media.
He said the level of interest in his debut was somewhat predictable given his brother’s status: “I was partially expecting it, but maybe not necessarily as extremely. But I can handle it, of course.” – Fabian Vettel said, as reported by the German media. Fabian Vettel added that his older brother supports him, but insisted that he is determined to make his own way independently in the world of motor racing: “Of course he (Sebastian) is a contact, because you cannot find a person with more motor sports experience. But I have decided that I want to tread my own path. I want to have to talk to people so that I have the money I need at the end of the year. The family is there for me, but together with my father I am doing it as normally as any other driver.” – the 18-year-old German driver concluded.
