Sebastian Vettel Clinches Third F1 World Title

Sebastian Vettel third title at Sebastian Vettel Clinches Third F1 World Title

He did it again. At the end of a properly exciting Formula 1 season, Sebastian Vettel managed to win his third Formula 1 world championship title. The German finished the exhilarating Brazilian Grand Prix in 6th place, but that was enough to give him the edge over his closest rival Fernando Alonso. Red Bull Racing also celebrated their third constructor’s title.

What made this season and this Grand Prix more special was the fact that until the very last lap Alsonso could have won the title. He finished second after McLaren’s Jensen Button, but Vettel’s exceptional performance in regaining ground after losing it early on in the race put him 3 points ahead of the Ferrari driver at the end. He is the youngest F1 driver with three world titles in his trophy room. Seb is on his way to break all of Schumacher’s records.

“It’s difficult to imagine what goes through my head now, I am so full of adrenalin. It was an incredible race, everything that could have happened to make it more difficult for us today, happened! I got turned around in Turn 4 for no reason and was heading the wrong way; so I had to get straight and was lucky no one hit me. The car was damaged and we lost speed in straights, even more as it dried up, but fortunately it started to rain again. All weekend people tried to push us in a certain direction and said if it rained it would be harder for us, but we have proven today that we like rain conditions as much as the dry. I am very, very happy. The most important thing throughout the season is that we kept pushing and remained ourselves. We just try to do our thing and stick to the route that we know and that’s what made the difference. Some people try to play games, but we never get distracted, we keep going our way. Everyone at Milton Keynes and here at the circuit, they are always pushing so hard and we really stepped up our game in the second half of the season. I would like to thank everyone in the team and at Renault.

On this occasion Infiniti, Red Bull’s main sponsor, announced they are going to deepen their relationship with the racing team and expand their partnership through to end of the 2016 season.  The partnership will involve the team name changing to INFINITI RED BULL RACING and Infiniti named as the major technical partner starting with the 2013 Formula One season.

Red Bull Racing’s Team Principal Christian Horner stated, “Red Bull Racing and Infiniti have been working on a number of initiatives since the start of our relationship in March 2011. During that time, Infiniti has demonstrated significant technical prowess and I’ve been impressed by the depth of the wider engineering capabilities of the Nissan Motor Company. In terms of marketing, Infiniti has leveraged their involvement with Red Bull Racing and Formula One very effectively and has become well known in a short space of time. These two attributes are what makes Infiniti the ideal title and technical partner for Red Bull Racing.”
