YouTuber Seen Through Glass joins hosts Jason Plato and Dave Vitty on the award-winning podcast Fuelling Around to discuss his career, working with some of the biggest brands in the automotive industry and what Sebatian Vettel is really like away from the Formula 1 grid.

Seen Through Glass, whose real name is Sam Fane, gained notoriety for his hobby of vlogging style videos of stunning cars in London and uploading them online, before using his social following to springboard into making car-related content his full-time job.

During the episode Fane discusses the cars he has driven and the ones he owns including a Jaguar E-Type and a Ferrari 360 Modena.

Seen Through Glass on what Sebastian Vettel is really like

Fane has been lucky enough to work with some of motosport’s biggest names including Vettel and Jamie Chadwick, and it was the former who the YouTuber gushed over about explaining what the four-time F1 world champion is like away from the track.

“I worked with Sebastian Vettel very early on in my career,” Fane explained.

“I must’ve had about 100-150,000 subscribers when I had the chance to film with Seb for some work I was doing with Shell.

“They put me in a (Ferrari) 488 at the time, it was kind of a new car and we had about 10 minutes around an airfield. Everything about it was amazing. The whole time the Ferrari press team said ‘you have no time with him. Don’t look him in the eye, don’t smell him.

“‘You’ll have ten minutes with him. Now you’ll have seven. Actually I think you may have three.’

“By the time I’d set up all the cameras and I’d stepped away, Seb was with a group chatting with him and I wandered over and said ‘I’m ready, let’s go’. And he (Vettel) looked at me and said ‘what is a YouTuber?’

“And we chatted for about 25 minutes before any cameras rolled. He was the most genuinely interested, nicest, funniest person. And for me being a massive F1 fan it was incredible, and then we got in the car.

“He drove like an absolute god, they’re moments I’ll never forget. I can still feel the feeling of that car floating like it did, and the video got a million-odd views.”
