Vettel Wows Berlin Crowd

Thousands of Berliners lined the street in front of the Brandenburg Gate on Saturday to watch F1 Champion Sebastian Vettel drive his Championship-winning Red Bull racer.

The 23-year-old German, who just less than two weeks ago became the youngest World Champion in the history of the sport, put his RB6 car through its paces for his fans in freezing temperatures and snowy conditions.

"This is something really special. You don't get this type of opportunity very often in life," he said.

Once the Berlin event is over, Vettel will head straight to Dusseldorf to participate in the Race of Champions, which pits the best Formula One, World Rally Championship, NASCAR, sports cars and touring cars drivers against each other in identical cars, ranging from dune buggies to super sports cars.

Vettel's previous performances in the Race of Champions have been impressive, winning the last three Nations Cup events with Michael Schumacher and they are now hoping to make it four in a row.

Vettel is the youngest of 16 participants in Dusseldorf, the oldest is four-time Formula One World Champion Alain Prost, who is 55.

After being held in the Stade de France near Paris for three years, the Race of Champions moved to Wembley Stadium for two years. Last year it was held in the Birds Nest in Beijing
