Sebastian Vettel became youngest F1 double champion

The 24 year old Red Bull driver and current world champion in Formula 1, Sebastian Vettel, managed to win his second, back-to-back, Formula 1 title by finishing on the third place in the Japanese Grand Prix over the weekend. He only needed one point to become champion once again and ended up with 14 more than required becoming Formula One’s youngest double world champion in history.

Vettel started from pole position the race for the 12th time in 15 races this season and wanted to end the championship race with a victory even though he needed just one point to secure the title but McLaren’s Jenson Button and Fernando Alonso managed to overtake him during the race. Button won the race but only managed to increase his lead from Alonso a bit for the 2nd place in the driver’s table.

The German driver dominated this season like his hero, Michael Schumacher, used to do in the past, and even though F1 fans out there are pretty sad because this championship race ended so fast, it’s all because of this guy’s wicked racing skills and probably thanks to an insanely good car from Red Bull.

Last year Vettel has won the title against the odds in the final race of the season  after not having led the championship at any stage until the very end but this year Sebastian led straight from start with nine wins and 14 podium finishes.
