Vettel to arrive late to Abu Dhabi following birth of third child

SAO PAULO, BRAZIL - NOVEMBER 16: Sebastian Vettel of Germany and Ferrari prepares to drive in the

Ferrari were a little light on the driver front in Abu Dhabi on Thursday, with Sebastian Vettel delaying his arrival at Yas Marina following the birth of his third child.

The four-time world champion was down to take part in the FIA press conference, alongside team mate Charles Leclerc, in what would have been the first time the duo had spoken since they had talks with team boss Mattia Binotto at Maranello last week following their collision in Brazil.

However, he was excused from those media duties and remained in Europe after his wife Hanna gave birth.

The German is flying today (Thursday) and expected to arrive in Abu Dhabi tonight, giving him plenty of time to prepare with his team ahead of the first practice session, which begins at 1300 local time on Friday.
