Berlin:

Germany's Sebastian Vettel is to give his local fans a treat by showcasing 'Kinky Kylie', the car he used to win his second Formula One world championship, in his native city of Heppenheim next week.

Vettel became the youngest driver to secure back-to-back titles when he finished third in the Japanese Grand Prix last week.

And the 24-year-old German continued his dominance Sunday with victory in the Korean Grand Prix to claim his 10th win of the season and 20th of his career.

After a scheduled visit to Red Bull's heaquarters in Milton Keynes, England in midweek the German will return to Europe Square in the centre of Heppenheim to speak to fans and give them a close-up of his winning machine, named after Australian singer Kylie Minogue.

"I'm delighted to be coming back home. And if the weather's good maybe we can have a little drive about town in the car. I hope the fans will turn out," Vettel said after victory in Korea, which also helped Red Bull secure the constructors' title.

Around 1500 fans congregated in Heppenheim -- which has been dubbed 'Vettelheim' -- last Sunday to watch the Japanese Grand Prix on a large screen.

After his maiden world title last year some 10,000 people turned out to welcome Vettel back home to the city.
