Sebastian Vettel tidies up after British GP as fans leave Silverstone in a mess

Sebastian Vettel demonstrated once again that he’s one of Formula One’s good guys by staying behind after the British Grand Prix to help Sunday’s clean up operation at Silverstone.

Nearly 140,000 fans packed into the various stands at the Northamptonshire track to witness an incident packed race which was ultimately won by home favourite Lewis Hamilton, in somewhat controversial circumstances.
