Sebastian Vettel makes surprise Suzuka appearance as the four-time F1 world champion visits former team Ferrari ahead of the Japanese Grand Prix

Sebastian Vettel was a surprise guest in Suzuka on Thursday when the four-time world champion visited the paddock prior to the Japanese Grand Prix.

Vettel, 36, was seen smiling in the pit lane alongside his former colleagues at Ferrari, with plenty of confidence at the Scuderia following Carlos Sainz’s dramatic victory in Singapore last weekend.

That victory ended Max Verstappen’s record-breaking run of ten victories, with Vettel having held the previous record of nine consecutive victories in Formula 1.

Vettel was a popular figure among fans at the end of last season, but has largely kept his distance from the sport.

He made a flying visit to the Monaco Grand Prix in May, although he kept a close eye on the details surrounding his post-racing career.
