Sebastian Vettel becomes Formula One champion for third time. 30/11/12
Sebastian Vettel became the youngest Formula One triple champion in history despite coming sixth in the Brazilian Grand Prix.
Vettel managed to battle his way through to sixth place even though his car sustained some damage following a collision in the wet conditions at the start of the race.
Vettel became the third driver to win three F1 titles in a row since Michael Schumacher won five times in a row between 2000 and 2004.
After the race Sebastian Vettel said “To win the third title here, where my idol Ayrton Senna came from, is unreal. It’s hard to imagine me joining him and some other great racers who won three titles. This is a difficult season, really difficult for us. But we are always together and do our best which in the end makes the difference. It’s unbelievable but the most important thing in our season is that we always believe in ourselves”
