Formula One world champion Sebastian Vettel will take to the streets of Berlin this weekend, as he celebrates his title success in front of his home fans. Vettel is expected to drive a Red Bull down the city’s famous ‘Fan Mile’ in front of the iconic Brandenburg Gate on Saturday, before journeying to Dusseldorf for this weekend’s Race of Champions.

“I've always wanted to race through the streets of Berlin and on Saturday I’ll actually get to do it!” Vettel told his official website. “We'll turn the area between the Brandenburg Gate and Yitzhak Rabin Street into a pit and put the pedal to the metal! This is just my way of saying thanks to all my German fans for their support and their dedication throughout the whole season.

“Not everyone is able to see a Formula One racing car in action, so I think this is a great opportunity for everyone who wants to experience it. Besides the show run there will also be a drivers' parade, a stunt ride and the Red Bull Tourbus, so there should be something for everyone. I hope we'll have a great day and a spectacular weekend at the Race of Champions.”

Since his championship win in Abu Dhabi earlier this month, Vettel has visited Red Bull’s Austrian base in Salzburg and the team’s UK factory in Milton Keynes to celebrate his success. Last Sunday the young German also found time to visit his home town of Heppenheim to meet and greet thousands of fans.
