Feb.11 (GMM) After calling his 2009 car ‘Kate’s Dirty Sister’, Sebastian Vettel proved his quirky humour remains fully intact at Wednesday’s launch of the new Red Bull.

Admitting that he was still dreaming up a personal name for his 2010 cockpit, the 22-year-old German also unveiled a novel new livery for his helmet.

Resembling a 250mL can of his employer’s energy drink product, the helmet includes details including Red Bull’s ingredients and a barcode.

On the top, meanwhile – to be viewed by a global audience many times from Vettel’s on board camera in 2010 – is a giant ring-pull.
