Sebastian Vettel's 27th birthday

Today, July 3, four-time Formula 1 champion Sebastian Vettel of the Red Bull Racing team marked his 27th birthday. And for reasons that the straight-thinking members of our staff still can't fathom, we actually have teammates who are so smitten with this poor man's Justin Bieber that they just had to celebrate the occasion.

These diehard Vettel fans are print managing editor Stephanie Asi, copy editor Sharleen Banzon and photographer Mikko David. The three of them arranged for a mini party in our office pantry, with the generous help of fellow Vettel devotee Richelle Manalad of Hyundai Asia Resources Inc. They all showed up in the office wearing all manner of Vettel merchandise--cap, shirt, jacket, bag...you name it.

Richelle, meanwhile, ordered a personalized Sebastian Vettel red velvet cake, which actually tasted quite okay. And of course, no birthday party would be complete without spaghetti (Amber!).

Enjoy our Vettel party photos. Too bad our EIC Vernon B. Sarne and test drive editor Jason dela Cruz weren't allowed to be seen in the photos, since the two of them are Kimi Raikkonen and Fernando Alonso fans, respectively. Actually, you can see Jason in one of the photos partly hidden and doing the thumbs-down sign.
