Vettel wary of eating nuclear sushi in Japan

Sushi

Triple F1 World Champion Sebastian Vettel is leaving nothing to chance as he chases his fourth consecutive World Championship this weekend at Suzuka.

Fearing contamination from the Fukushima nuclear disaster two years ago, Red Bull arranged for fish and meat to be delivered to Suzuka from Australia, the German newspaper Bild reports.

The report said that Mercedes is also taking extra precautions in Japan this weekend.

“We are taking absolutely no risks,” a spokesman said.

Meanwhile, Red Bull team boss Christian Horner confirmed reports he is yet to see his newly-born and as yet unnamed daughter, after his wife Beverley gave birth to their first child in Britain just after the Korean Grand Prix last weekend.

Horner said he was “sad” that he did not travel home after Korea, but had to attend business meetings in Tokyo ahead of the Japanese Grand Prix.

“The caesarean was actually planned for a week later, but [Beverley] was in pain and the doctors had to do it earlier,” the 39-year-old revealed.

“But at least everything went smoothly.

“I fly home on Monday and will finally get to see my daughter,” added Horner. (GMM)

    Come on, how many men due to commitments at the other side of the world, miss the birth and the first few days of their children’s lives, and I am commenting as a woman. They as a family will, hopefully, have many many moments to share in the next 40+ years.

    Anyway, CONGRATULATIONS Mr Horner on the birth of your daughter!
