FORMULA ONE drivers need incredibly sharp reflexes to navigate the track at speeds in excess of 200mph.
Yet German racer Sebastian Vettel‘s reflex after the Italian Grand Prix in Monza will go down as one of his more embarrassing moments during his distinguished career.
Following his respectable third-place finish in Italy, Vettel hopped out of his Ferrari and prepared himself for the usual post-race celebrations.
Yet after stepping inside to grab his celebratory cap and make his way to the podium, an old Red Bull reflex of his must have kicked in, as he picked up – and put on – the winner’s hat.
Rather than taking the third-place cap, he took the one reserved for compatriot Nico Rosberg, who in fact won the race.
Oh dear, Seb…

During the race at the famous Monza circuit, Lewis Hamilton blew his chance of winning the Grand Prix after another shocking start.
The Brit had to settle for second place behind bitter Mercedes rival Rosberg, whose win here closes the gap in the title race to just two points, now.
Hamilton was overtaking by no fewer than five other racers after starting the race on pole position before he’d even navigated the opening corner in Italy.
Ultimately though, the British racer – and reigning world champion – came in second as the Mercedes pairing occupied the top two spots of the podium comfortably.
Vettel was left to fight for third, which he did much to his delight… Before making the off-track blunder.
