Vettel Wraps up the 2013 Formula 1 Championship
Sebastian Vettel wrapped up the Formula 1 World Championship in emphatic style with victory in the Indian Grand Prix on the 27th October. The win enables the 26-year-old German to add to his already formidable tally of Formula 1 records - the Red Bull driver is now the youngest to win four straight World Championships.
"An incredible day, winning the Championship by winning that race was definitely Sebastian's objective the moment he arrived here," Red Bull Team Principal Christian Horner told Sky Sports F1 after the race. "He's just been phenomenal all weekend”.
It was an altogether different outcome for Fernando Alonso, the only driver with a mathematical chance of overhauling Vettel in the title race. As the latter performed doughnuts in front of the crowd before getting down on his knees in front of his RB9 - a suitable 'I am not worthy' gesture - the Ferrari driver was reflecting on his 11th place.
Johnny would like to congratulate Sebastian on securing his fourth World Title “this is a fantastic achievement and cements Sebatian’s place firmly in the greats of motorsports”.
