Sebastian Vettel certainly knows how to draw a crowd - and on Thursday at the Japanese Grand Prix, the paddock turned out en masse.

Vettel is at Suzuka to launch 'Buzzing Corner' - an initiative he has launched to build 'huts' for bees and other wildlife on the inside at Turn 2 - with the kerb also being painted black and yellow.

All 10 teams has its own hut, with the drivers invited to decorate them as they saw fit as the four-time champion explained just what he is hoping to achieve.

"The bee is a great ambassador and the project is called Buzzing Corner, Racing for Biodiversity," Vettel told media including RacingNews365.

"We are currently seeing a decline in biodiversity, we're losing species and are in the middle of a mass extinction, so [the project] is to showcase that we can all make a difference.

"We are providing a small habitat here, but it is really about preservation and making sure that we are not continuing to lose biodiversity."
