F1 » Three-time champ looks to the future


What do you do when you've just become the youngest-ever three-time F1 world champion at the age of just 25? Sebastian Vettel is letting it sink in first, before setting new targets.

Surely the most fortunate driver in F1 history to have cars so demonstrably faster than the opposition year on year,can't blame him though he scrapes titles despite himself.

Oh get over yourself, comments like that are embarrassing and ill informed, this has been a far from easy season for Vettel and he's pulled some superb overtakes, and produced so great drives from the back of the field. The advantage the Red Bull had this was minimal compared to 2011 and he deserves his title this year.

People will have their opinions about how he had a superior car and all that, but, at the end of the day, the record books - and history - will show him as a three (maybe even more) time champion. And that will continue to speak long after the words of his detractors die down.

He is in rarefied company now.

Being An Indian I dont like vettel At all. but your words are 100% correct. after 50 odd years no one will say that vettel has superior car but how may titles he had. he has written his name in history book.

I'm sure Vettel will take Rob's comment as a compliment. Adrian Newey knows how to tweek the spec slightly better than the others but, as Taz says, it gets pretty tiresome hearing some of the ill-informed rants about Vettel only winning because he had the best car.

I have a new respect for SV.
He was extremely humble after the race on Sunday that I thought showed him in a different light.
I saw how he battled this year at Abu Dhabi only to repeat the drive in Brazil.
Yes his car might have the edge but McLaren & Ferrari are not that far behind.
