Vettel questions Formula 1 career over oil sands

Sebastian Vettel arrived at the Montreal Grand Prix wearing his thoughts about climate change on his T-shirt.

 

The Formula One star from Germany arrived at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in a T-shirt with the slogans “Stop Mining Tar Sands” and “Canada's Climate Crime” under a picture of a pipeline.

 

He's wearing a helmet with the same message this weekend.

 

His pipeline shirt created a buzz on social media, with many calling Vettel a hypocrite for competing in a gas-guzzling sport like Formula One.

 

His team Aston Martin is also sponsored by Saudi Arabia's state-owned oil giant Aramco.

 

The father of three told the B-B-C last month that his concerns about climate change have made him question his Formula One job.
