Famous finger protected for future Hollywood fame

In the lead-up to this year's Turkish Grand Prix, slippery conditions caused Formula One Champion Sebastian Vettel to crash his Red Bull RB7. Thankfully, Vettel emerged unharmed, which is also very fortunate for his right index finger. 

Vettel is well known for his victory routine in which he points his index finger in the 'number 1' position to cameras and spectators.  While some may find this annoying, its popularity has recently seen him insure this right index finger for a hefty $10 million. 

His famous digit has, along with its owner, been signed to the well known management company 19.  Owner of 19, Simon Fuller (ex manager of the Spice Girls), has hinted that Vettel may be set for Hollywood stardom once his F1 career is over, so taking care of all his assets is important.
