Sebastian Vettel's wish has (almost) been granted after he jokingly asked for a special prize in return for winning last year's F1 'Overtake Award'.

When he was informed about claiming the newly-introduced title after last year's season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, Vettel laughed over the radio: "What's the prize? A million jelly beans?"

Ahead of the 2022 campaign, Vettel has been presented with the prize by award sponsor Crypto.com. Picking up the jar, Vettel smiled: "Is it actually one million?!"
