Vettel excited about 2012 machine

Sebastian Vettel excited about what his 2012 F1 challenger will be like
Sebastian Vettel says he can't wait to see the car he will hope to win a third straight F1 title with in 2012, likening it to the wait for a new child to be born.

Vettel dominated the 2011 season to join the likes of Alberto Ascari, Juan Manuel Fangio, Ayrton Senna and Michael Schumacher in becoming a back-to-back F1 title winner.

Speaking to the BBC, Vettel said he was curious about what the new car designed by Red Bull technical chief Adrian Newey would be like and admitted it would be a 'fantastic' achievement for the team if it was able to replicate the form displayed this season.

"It all starts from zero again and we all have the same chance," he said. "I'm looking forward to the competition. We are all very happy with this year, so it wouldn't be right to ask for more. If we can match 2011 and do better here and there, that would be fantastic.

"We are all curious about the car. We see it coming together. It's like a child being born. I'm not a father but they tell me that's how it feels."

Vettel added that he was proud of his achievements in becoming the ninth person to defend the title.

"You try not to think consciously about yourself and your success and what you might have achieved,” he said. "But then when you see you are now at the same step as these guys. It is hard to put into words."
