A day after arriving at the Red Bull headquarters in Salzburg Sebastien Vettel spoke of his unforgettable season which saw him, at 23-years-old, crowned the youngest Formula One world champion in the sport’s history.
Sitting alongside teammate Mark Webber and team principle Christian Horner the German said “It will always remain a special day. I think winning your first Grand Prix, achieving to make the step into Formula One, doing your first Formula One race and equally winning your first Formula One championship, I think will always remain something very special.”
It was a remarkable season for the team who also won the constructors title for the first time in their six years in F1.
‘‘I am incredibly proud about what we as a team achieved this year. Next year will not be an easy year. Everybody is chasing us but I think we all worked very hard to be able to be in this position now,” said the newly-crowned champ.
Red Bull have established themselves as a major force in the sport and will now relish the challenge of defending their two titles next season, which will feature a record 20 races.
