Girlfriend of two-time world champion at the time Sebastian Vettel, Hanna Prater, is one of the more reclusive WAGs as she has hardly been seen in the paddocks or at the races.

Vettel prefers not to change the trend reportedly reasoning, "Never bring your girlfriend to work with you, if my girlfriend was here I would probably feel the necessity to look after her.”

The Red Bull driver prefers to keep his personal and professional life apart and almost no one from his team has ever met his partner.

Of German and British descent, Prater lives in Germany and has studied textile and design at Baden-Wurttemberg University. When Sebastian became the Formula 1 champion for the first time in 2010, it is believed that she changed university as she was constantly faced with questions about her boyfriend and his whereabouts.

A year younger than him, Hanna met Vettel in high school and were close friends for some time before beginning their romantic relationship.

Not known to interact freely with the media, she did mention in one of her interviews that they had been high school sweethearts. “We have known each other since school. I was in the year below him. I am just so proud of him”, she said.

Although she does not attend Grands Prix, she is said to zealously follow her beau’s progress in Formula 1, eversince his debut in 2006.


INTERESTING FACTS:
  • Has probably attended only one race so far. She was spotted in the paddock at the 2006 Italian Grand Prix Saturday Practice.
