Grear make-up and a bit of lippy on an F1 driver? You don't see that every day!

Two-time World Champion and Bahrain Grand Prix winner Sebastian Vettel has made an appearance in a feature photo shoot for the German edition of the GQ men’s magazine.

His shoot took place just a few months after Lewis Hamilton’s much-talked about photo spread for the January edition of its British publication.

Vettel’s modelling work took place during pre-season testing at the Circuit de Catalunya in February (note the grandstands in the background), and the German ace was given the opportunity to strike a pose on the classic Renault Alpine A110 ‘Berlinette’, a car that dominated the rallying scene in the early 1970s, almost a decade before Sebastian was even born.
