Just when you thought F1 being a fever dream was over now Miami’s done, Sebastian Vettel has appeared on the panel of the BBC’s political talk show Question Time.
It may seem like an odd thing to see a four-time World Champion on a TV show alongside politicians, but we’ve all seen in recent years Seb’s passion for activism.
Seb came across extremely well, even when being asked tough questions like was he a hypocrite for caring about the environment when racing F1 cars?
“You've talked a lot about energy…does that make you a hypocrite?”
“When I get out of the car, of course I’m thinking, is this something that we should do?”
On #bbcqt tonight, F1 driver Sebastian Vettel and the panel discuss the energy crisis.

His appearance meant a lot of F1 fans ended up tuning in for the first time ever.
Sad indictment of British politics that Sebastian Vettel has rocked up on #BBCQT and spoken more sense than most of the elected members who appear on it weekly.

#bbcqt I’m guessing a qualy lap at Spa in a thunderstorm on intermediates is looking quite a simple task right now…

If Sebastian Vettel ever needed to know how well he's regarded, thousands of us watched all of *that* #bbcqt
