Germany’s Sebastian Vettel won his third straight Formula One World Championship, clinching the title in the very last race of the season, the Brazilian Grand Prix in Sao Paulo. Only the great Juan Manuel Fangio, who won four straight championships between 1954 and 1957 and Michael Schumacher, with five titles between 2000 and 2004, have a better record of consecutive titles.
The key to Vettel’s success came in September when his Red Bull car was upgraded. This resulted in excellent qualifying performances and four straight Grand Prix wins in Singapore, Japan, Korea and India.
