Sebastian Vettel

Birth Date: 3 July 1987 Home Town: Heppenheim, Germany
Nationality: Germany Web: www.sebastianvettel.de

Sebastian Vettel is the reigning Formula 1 world champion – the youngest in history, having secured the 2010 title in Abu Dhabi aged 23. Since then he has proved it was no fluke, utterly dominating the 2011 F1 season and repeating the feat in a thrilling 2012 finale in Interlagos to become the youngest ever triple world champion.

Vettel signalled his intent by taking a point on his debut at the 2007 US Grand Prix. He became the youngest grand prix winner in history when he won the 2008 Italian Grand Prix for Toro Rosso aged just 21 years and 73 days. He’d also become the youngest driver to take a pole position the day earlier.

The German's switch to the sister team Red Bull Racing the next year netted even more success. He took four wins en route to second place in the world championship, a position he bettered in each of the next three years.

Vettel’s Race Of Champions record is impressive too – with six ROC Nations Cup wins out of six attempts in the company of Michael Schumacher. His best finish in the individual event is the semi-finals so which he has reached twice.
