Oh, isn’t that cute? Vettel was matchy matchy with his girlfriend~~~ They were both wearing parkas and white tops (although Vettel’s looks a little sweater-like). Vettel was also wearing a verrry familiar looking scarf. While I don’t track driver stats per se, I do tend to track their accessories.
So where have I seen this scarf before?
On Wolfman in Spa 2010, that’s where:
Perhaps Wolfman gave it to Vettel as a parting gift? Or maybe Vettel is just copping Wolfman’s style? Or is it Red Bull team gear? 😉 Who knows.
edit: It is in fact Red Bull team gear! Check out this photo I found of Vergne. If you enlarge it, the Red Bull logo can be seen. This is a rather clever graphic design isn’t it? Despite my hate for logos, I rather like this take on a geometric pattern…
Naturally the next question is, where can Red Bull fans get this scarf? I’m not sure, but the flagship store in Austria would be my best bet.
Since a few drivers from 2011 have been .. ahem.. replaced, I thought it would be nice to have a spotlight on some of the new faces on the grid. Of course, if you are looking for a biography, statistics, or analysis of their driving… you should probably head elsewhere (you know… like to a proper F1 fansite). Cuz this is thepitwalk, and this blog tends to focus on the superficial. 😉
So … what do we think about Jean-Eric Vergne? He’s no pretty boy, that’s for sure. It’s a bit of a stretch, but I can only think of Vergne as a Buemi replacement, especially with that backwards cap. 😛
Oh well, time will tell whether Vergne is F1 Top Model material or not. But based on what I’ve seen so far, I’d say … not. 😉
