Sebastian Vettel recently revealed his love for India and recounted a funny incident during his last trip when he came here for the last race in 2013 at the Buddh International Circuit. Vettel won all three races held at the circuit for the Indian GP between 2011-2013. 

"Well, I have won every race there was so, I love it. We won the championship in 2013 and we had a little bit of a party in a bar and we had some drinks and I had too many drinks and then I was driving back at some point in the morning to the airport and I was hungover and not feeling so good," Vettel said in a video posted by Formula 1 on Twitter.

But then there was a twist in the tale. The four-time world champion was in for a cultural shock while he was on his way back to the airport. 

"And then I said to my driver 'Please do not tell me I am that drunk that there is an elephant on the road.' And he said 'No, no there is really an elephant on the road'. So, I will also never forget the elephant in the middle of the road. Only in India," said the Ferrari driver who was with the Red Bull team at the time.
