Sebastian Vettel Captures Third-Straight F1 Title

Vettel—Interlagos 2012 celebration

Sebastian Vettel rode a heartstopping rollercoaster of a Brazilian Grand Prix en route to becoming the youngest three-time Formula One world champion. The race at Interlagos proved to be one of the most dramatic in the sport’s history as the destiny of the title swung one way and then the other between the Red Bull driver and Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso.

The conditions over Sao Paulo played havoc, resulting in a catalogue of incidents, not least Vettel dropping to last place after the first few corners following a collision with Williams’ Bruno Senna. But through drizzle, light rain, then heavy rain and multiple pit stops, it was Vettel who emerged victorious, coming home sixth to finish three points ahead of Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso.

The German called Brazil “the toughest race” of his career. “Everything that could go wrong went wrong.” Jenson Button, who won, called it “the craziest race I’ve ever been in.”
