Bernie Ecclestone has revealed that he likes F1's new world champion so much he would be happy to be his father-in-law.

F1's chief executive has always admitted his affection for youngest-ever champion Sebastian Vettel, but he has now told a German newspaper he could imagine the 23-year-old being one of his daughters' boyfriend.

"I wouldn't mind it at all. He should give it a try and ask," Ecclestone joked to the Bild-Zeitung newspaper.

Ecclestone's daughters Petra (22) and Tamara (26) reportedly both have boyfriends, and Vettel's long-term girlfriend is student Hanna Prater, who he met at school in Heppenheim.

Said Ecclestone, 80: "He (Vettel) would be a good son-in-law. He's funny, normal, he has his goals and is working hard to reach them. I like him very much."
