Sebastian Vettel US GP 2013

Vettel Wins United States GP

Sebastian Vettel continued to show his dominance in this year’s Formula 1 season, by winning the United States GP. In doing so, Sebastian Vettel set a new Formula 1 record - and moved to the brink of equalling two more - for the most consecutive victories in a single season with his eighth win on the spin in the United States GP.

With Vettel long since sewn up his fourth championship, even though he might not admit it, has been able to focus on record-collecting during the final weeks of his sensational season and the first landmark fell in Austin on Sunday as he became the first man to win eight straight events in one calendar year.

Johnny said “This is a fantastic feat for such a young driver, this will definitely not be the last record we see Vettel break. An incredible driver, backed up by a great team Red Bull. This partnership will continue to bring great success for both parties and I look forward to seeing what happens in Brazil.”

Vettel now heads to the season-finale in Brazil at the weekend to round off his glorious 2013 season by equalling two more milestones: Michael Schumacher's 13 victories from 2004 and Alberto Ascari's nine straight GP wins, a mark which has remained impregnable for 60 years.
