F1 driver Sebastian Vettel’s brutally frank take on Brexit was so on-point it hurts
To BBC1’s Question Time – no, stick with us, please – where Formula 1 driver Sebastian Vettel was among the panellists and was asked to give his take on the state Britain finds itself in right now.
Specifically, about the fallout from Brexit and it’s chaotic impact on Northern Ireland and pretty much everything else it impacts on.
And his answer was so on-point – and delivered so beautifully, with such good humour – that it hurts.
“Now you’re in this mess, you’ve got to deal with it”

Vettel for PM.
I’m so chuffed to have managed to get Seb Vettel on BBC #QuestionTime & I’m so proud of the way he answered questions in his 2nd language about the politics of a country in which he doesn’t live. Here he is talking common sense about Brexit. #BBCQTpic.twitter.com/ADZy3ew6v8

That’s the Sebastian Vettel effect you see there. He expresses his opinion with no malice in his voice voice and a little smile on his lips and you just smile with him. And he is so right about what he’s saying, in unity there is strength. pic.twitter.com/qBXUyqIUaz

“We need to do this together. We will not pull this off with just one of us.”

Am now at the point that I’d LITERALLY rather have a German Formula 1 Driver as Prime Minister than the appalling incumbent. https://t.co/3BjMbAdRpL
