Vettel’s break came in 2008 for Toro Rosso. The race in a wet Monza, Italy provided a golden opportunity for the small Italian squad to secure their maiden and only victory to date.
His Career has been littered with success, particularly his four world championships for Red Bull between 2010 and 2013 in Adrian Newey’s perfectly designed cars.
His career so far has seen elements of controversy. Cast the mind back to Turkey 2010 for example:
and Mark Webber fans will remember “multi 21” especially, the Aussie denied a victory in Malaysia as Vettel disobeyed team orders to win.
Overall, the 29-year-old has added excitement and skill to the sport, one of the drivers of the modern era without question.
