Vettel yet to officially confirm he is now a father 19 January, 2014 Sebastian Vettel with Hanna Prater F1 World Champion Sebastian Vettel is yet to confirm reports that he is now a father. We reported earlier this week that the reigning quadruple World Champion’s partner Hanna gave birth to a baby girl last Sunday. News of their impending parenthood broke only last December, when Hanna Prater – rarely seen in the Formula 1 paddock – was reportedly eight months pregnant. The birth of their child in a Swiss hospital caused a stir among his fans, but the famously-private Vettel has neither a Facebook page nor a Twitter profile, and thus has not confirmed the news via social media. Now Bild newspaper reports that the 26-year-old’s management declined to confirm or deny the reports about Vettel’s fatherhood. What is clearer is that the Red Bull driver will have a new physical trainer in 2014, after working with Finn Heikki Huovinen in 2012 and 2013. Before that, Vettel’s well-known trainer was Tommi Parmakoski, another Finn. Sport Bild reports that Vettel’s new trainer is yet another Finn, Antti Kontsas, who formerly worked with Toro Rosso driver Jean-Eric Vergne, and Red Bull reserve Sebastien Buemi. All three Finns – Parmakoski, Huovinen and Kontsas – have links to the former McLaren doctor Aki Hintsa, who is close to Vettel. (GMM) Subbed by AJN.
