Vettel and the environment
Unlike other pilots, the German used his spare time to learn about organic farming. Sebastian Vettel recently submitted his Organic Farming Project. “Since I had more time than I had planned, I thought about what I could do and what interests me. At some point, you realize that not all vegetables are the same, and that not all apples contain the same nutrients, and you wonder why. Then you quickly realize where the apples come from and how they are grown, and this is how the doors were opened for me, ”he explained.
Vettel He even planted a giant heart-shaped garden at his home in Switzerland with his daughters. “The theory interests me and I read about it a lot. But knowing more about the practical side and talking to the people who deal with it on a daily basis was so much fun.

The girls were with me at first, however Then I was left alone with the bulldozer and that was so tiredCommented on the matter.
