Red Bull’s German driver Sebastian Vettel became only the third person in history to win three Formula One world championships in a row. However, is he really as good as people say he is, or is he just prospering from having such a great car?
25 year old Vettel became only the ninth driver to ever win three world championships and with many years left in the sport, he could become one of the greatest drivers in history. Yet his Red Bull is considered far superior to the Ferrari of Fernando Alonso, who took Vettel all the way.
So, is Sebastian Vettel the best in the business or is the Red Bull too good for the rest? Well, there is no denying that Adrian Newey is a legend at making great cars and the Red Bull is the best car on the grid but it is not all down to the car.
Just look back to the victory that Sebastian Vettel achieved in a Toro Rosso. That day alone proved what a great driver he was going to be and he has not disappointed. Fernando Alonso has done superbly well to challenge for the Formula One title but Sebastian Vettel, once again proved to have that little bit extra.
Sebastian Vettel is a true champion and will be remembered as one of the greats of Formula One. Congratulations Sebastian Vettel, Formula One World Champion 2010, 2011, 2012 and no doubt more in the future.
