When asked of his car of choice and duties to his team's major sponsors come first, Vettel replied the Infiniti is his favourite at the moment but the car he really likes to use is a Volkswagen bus a people carrier.
Vettel added it is easier to put all his s*** in the back, and he can also take all the seats out.
Vettel revealed he hates traffic queues and, and he admits sometimes he gets caught by the police taking dubious short cuts.
