As well as being a four-time Formula 1 World Champion on the track, Sebastian Vettel has become known for his off-track actions in recent years, including his tradition of naming each one of his cars.
Since his first full-time season in F1 in 2008, the German has chosen a different moniker for every car he has driven. There were an assortment of names during his Red Bull days, ranging from Luscious Liz to Kate and Kate's Dirty Sister.
When Vettel moved to Ferrari in 2015, the choices tended to reflect the team's Italian roots, with the first being Eva. Margherita, Gina and Lucilla were amongst those to follow.
A new chapter in Vettel's career began in 2021, when he made the switch to the newly-named Aston Martin outfit. In keeping with the brand's links to the James Bond franchise, the driver named his car Honey Ryder, a nod to the Bond girl played by Ursula Andress in the 1962 film Dr. No.
Vettel now enters into his second season with the team in 2022, but the question remains over what he will choose to call the AMR22.
