FORMULA 1 world champion Sebastian Vettel, a big fan of the Beatles as well as Silverstone circuit, will be hoping to put Abbey on the road to success this season.

The 24-year-old German, who has named all of his cars and is chasing a third successive drivers’ title, has decided to call his new Red Bull car ‘Abbey’ after racing in the past with ‘Kate’, ‘Kate’s Dirty Sister’, ‘Luscious Liz’, ‘Randy Mandy’ and ‘Kinky Kylie’. The Beatles’ ‘Abbey Road’ was recorded by the group in 1969, while Abbey is also a well known corner at Silverstone.
