Mayawati gifts statue to Sebastian Vettel

Sebastian Vettel with the Mayawati Statue
Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh (UP), Ms Mayawati, gifted a statue of herself to Sebastian Vettel who won the inagural Indian F1 Grand Prix on Sunday, in an event held at the FIA headquarters in Paris. The F1 Grand Prix was held at the Budh Circuit in Greater Noida, Uttar Pradesh. Vettel took both pole position and winner honours in the race.

The chief minister has already put up statues of herself all over the state and wanted to  gift the  winner immediately after the race. However,  F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone and FIA president Jean Todt persuaded her that the gift must be presented at the FIA heaquarters.

In the press conference that followed, Vettel said that he would carry the statue in his car in all future races and will lose weight to compensate for the statue's weight. It is also learnt that Ms Mayawati has already spoken to Ecclestone, Todt, and the Jaypee group to handout Mayawati plush toys at next year's Indian GP.
