Greater Noida: Sebastian Vettel won the Indian Grand Prix to seal his fourth consecutive World Championship title on Sunday. It’s another pole to podium finish for the Red Bull driver at Buddh International Circuit.
“Phenomenal season for us. It’s all always a pleasure to jump into the car. I couldn’t ask for more,” says Vettel presentation ceremony.
The 26-year-old has continued his winning streak and takes it to six in a row by finishing at the top in the Indian GP. With this win, Vettel has become the youngest driver to capture the world championship title for four times in his career.
Now the German has joined the elite club of Michael Schumacher and Juan Manuel Fangio as only the third driver to become the world champion for the fourth time.
It’s a hat-trick win for Vettel at the Indian GP, as he has won all three races to have taken place at the Buddh International Circuit.
Vettel has now won the 10 races in this season and with three races still left, he can still match Schumacher`s 2004 record of 13 victories in a season.
But Vettel’s teammate, Mark Webber who was participating in the Indian GP for the last time -- as will retire at the end of this season-- had to leave the race in between due to a gear-box problem.
