F1 driver Sebastian Vettel did an organic farming internship during lockdown
He had an internship in organic farming
When the COVID-19 pandemic hit the world, most of us were bored in our homes not having much to do. F1 drivers were no exception. In order to keep himself occupied during the pandemic, four-time Formula 1 world champion Sebastian Vettel completed an internship in organic farming.

"Since I had more time than I had actually planned, I thought about what I could do and what interested me," Vettel said.
"That's what interests me. At some point you realise that not every vegetable is the same, not every apple has the same nutrients, and then you ask why. Then you realise very quickly where the apple comes from and how it is grown - and that's how the doors opened for me.
"The theory interests me and I read about it a lot. But to learn more from the practical side and talk to the people who deal with it on a day-to-day basis, that was very interesting," he concluded.
When Sebastian Vettel was asked if he could pursue a career in farming after he retires from F1, he said that it is "still far away, of course".
