Four-time world champ Sebastian Vettel falls foul of the F1 fun police after going on a crowd-pleasing lap of Albert Park on a scooter – only for stewards to launch an investigation

Three-time Australian Grand Prix winner Sebastian Vettel is being investigated for a light-hearted moment where he pinched a scooter and did a ‘lap of honour’ for delighted fans at Albert Park on Friday. Vettel’s spontaneous trip around the track came after his car suffered a power outage and caught fire during the first practice session. Vettel took matters into his own hands by grabbing a fire extinguisher to put out the flames, but it was what happened next that really grabbed fan’s attention. Vettel is also understood to be in hot water for not wearing the helmet properly and taking his hands off the handlebars to wave to fans. The fans, we have said before they are passionate, but they are so knowledgeable and they do support every single driver,’ a commentator said while Vettel was completing his scooter lap.
