Sebastian Vettel has continued his tradition of naming his Formula 1 cars by deciding to call this season’s challenger ‘Hungry Heidi’, after German-American supermodel Heidi Klum.

The name was chosen with the Red Bull crew after a long and funny discussion in a Melbourne steakhouse on Wednesday night, according to the Bild.

Heidi Klum, who had briefly dated former team owner Flavio Briatore [PHOTO], was the inspiration for the new moniker.

However, Gunther Klum, Heidi's father, clarified that Vettel and the supermodel do not even know each other.

“But of course it is a nice touch," Klum Sr told the Bild.

Vettel had named last year’s car ‘Abbey’, which followed ‘Kinky Kylie’ (2011), ‘Randy Mandy’ and ‘Luscious Liz’ in 2010, ‘Kate’ and ‘Kate’s Dirty Sister’ in the preceding season and ‘Julie’ for the Toro Rosso in which he registered his first win in Formula 1 in 2008.
