Vettel no fan of ‘selfie guy’ and ‘shitty trophies’ on F1 podium
December 1, 2019
Sebastian Vettel is no fan of selfie seeking mascots and shitty trophies when it comes to the Formula 1 podium as the German demonstrated after Sunday’s Mexican Grand Prix.
The race’s organisers premiered a new winner’s celebration that featured a lift that elevated Lewis Hamilton’s Mercedes on to the podium platform at the Foro Sol stadium.
Vettel had no complaints about the folkloric local festivities but snubbed a photo opportunity with the event’s mascot ‘Mario Achi’, pushing the character away as it sought a selfie with the Ferrari driver.

Sunday’s runner-up also criticsed, as he’s done before, the trophy handed out to the top 3, reiterating his call for less “boring” designs of the pieces of silverware.
