Former Formula 1 world champion Sebastian Vettel has been announced as the latest addition to this year's Race Of Champions.

The four-time F1 champion will join a host of motorsport stars for the 2015 edition which will be hosted at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London on the 20-21 November.

The Ferrari driver has an excellent record competing at the Race of Champions after claimed the ROC Nations Cup for Germany in his debut year in 2007 partnering Michael Schumacher. The pair retained the trophy for six consecutive years eventually losing their grip on the title in 2012.

Vettel joins a long list of stars preparing for this year's event, including nine-time Le Mans 24 Hors winner Tom Kristensen, FIA World Rallycross champion Petter Solberg and reigning ROC champion David Coulthard.

"I'm looking forward to returning to the Race Of Champions, which I've enjoyed competing in since my Formula 1 debut in 2007," Vettel said. "It is going to be very exciting to race cars in the Stadium that hosted the 2012 London Olympic Games.

"Of course I'll miss having Michael as my team-mate this time but I'll try my best to bring the ROC Nations Cup trophy back to Germany and to win my first individual ROC title. That is one trophy that is still missing from my collection."
