It appears as though some of those in attendance for Sunday’s race didn’t take too kindly to Vettel’s strong words though and booed the driver as he made his way around the track in the hours before the Grand Prix. Vettel didn’t mince his words in Friday’s press conference, when he called out “Canada’s climate crime”.

“I find this – fascinating might be the wrong word – but there’s a lot going on. We live in a time and age where we are so much aware of a lot of things,” he said. “I think what happens in Alberta is a crime because you chop down a lot of trees and you basically destroy the place just to extract oil and the manner of doing it with the tar sands mining, oil sands mining is horrible for nature.

“Obviously Canada’s greenhouse gas emissions have gone up since they started doing it. The site has only been, as far as I read, found like 20 years ago.

“The prime minister said that no other country would find these resources and not pick them up; I think in principle every country and every person has their opinions and their stance. My personal opinion is I disagree.”

His comments weren’t well received by some Canadian politicians with Alberta’s minister for energy Sonya Savage labelling the German a hypocrite.
