A 31-year-old Austrian woman has in recent days claimed on several articles and interviews to have helped the Red Bull driver to achieve his unprecedented success.

"I don't even know this woman," Vettel told Bild newspaper.

Red Bull's driver manager Helmut Marko revealed: "We have referred the matter to the lawyers."

In fact, the woman might also be the victim of a fraud, after producing a recent email supposedly from Vettel.

Vettel's spokeswoman Britta Roeske insisted: "That letter did not come from Sebastian's email address."

The mental coach said: "Maybe I've been misled by a charlatan."
