Vettel tells young offenders they could get jobs in Formula One


Professional racing driver Sebastian Vettel has told young offenders that “prejudice” against their criminal records should not stop them from working in Formula One during a visit to a prison with the Justice Secretary. Vettel, who races in F1 for Aston Martin, made a pit stop at HMP Feltham, a prison and young offender institute in west London, and cut the ribbon to open a new car workshop for the inmates on Thursday. The workshop will train young offenders in auto maintenance and repair in a bid to help them get jobs upon release.
