F1 champion Sebastian Vettel revs up charm offensive
Red Bull's Vettel delights fans in cameo appearance for team sponsor
With the precision of a Formula One pit-stop routine, Sebastian Vettel breezed in, opened a store, answered a few questions for the media and was whisked off by his entourage - all in 15 minutes.
That was all the time the defending F1 champion had at the Marina Bay Sands yesterday, where the Red Bull Racing driver cut the ribbon to a new watch shop for team sponsor Casio.
His cameo was slick. It struck all the right notes for the estimated 200 fans, who crowded outside the shop to catch a glimpse of the sport's dominant driver.
The German said all the right words at the right time, praising his team's sponsor and thanking the fans for their support.
