Sebastian Vettel will add an album to his Beatles collection at the forthcoming Abu Dhabi season finale -- at a cool cost of more than $4000 (USD).

The original and signed vinyl copy of the 1963 LP 'With The Beatles' was owned by Ann Bradshaw, a well-known F1 team press officer who came to know the Red Bull driver when he worked with BMW-Sauber in 2006.

Vettel, 22, found out that Bradshaw was selling the album at auction in order to fund a bathroom renovation, and asked the 60-year-old to bid on his behalf.

"I got a text and email from him telling me to 'please buy the album'," Bradshaw told the Peterborough Evening telegraph.

"I will give it to him at the final race of the season in Abu Dhabi," she added.
