Vettel's new chassis to be known as...

Wednesday 12-March-2014 13:56

It's the news everyone has been waiting for (drum roll, please): Sebastian Vettel's 2014 car has been christened 'Suzie'.

Of course we are just pulling your leg, but the word is out that the four-time World Champion will stick to naming his chassis after a female.

He started his 2013 season with 'Hungry Heidi' and before that he had 'Kate', 'Kate's Dirty Little Sister', 'Randy Mandy', 'Luscious Liz', 'Kinky Kylie' and 'Abbey'.

The 26-year-old German will be hoping that 'Suzie' brings him plenty of good luck on Sunday when the new campaign gets underway at Australia's Albert Park.

His Red Bull team struggled during pre-season test following the introduction of the new engine rule changes, but maybe 'Suzie' will come good in Melbourne over the weekend.
