Sebastian Vettel has now signed another contract with Red Bull extending his current contract by a year. In March 2011, Vettel signed a contract with Red Bull saying that he would still be racing for them up until the end of 2014, but now he has confirmed he will be there until at least the end of 2015. Sebastian Vettel originally joined Red Bull in 2009 and it only took them one year to show that they were going to dominate Formula 1.
In 2010, Red Bull and Sebastian Vettel displayed a wonderful season together which was not completely dominant, but still led both parties to massive victories. It was during the Brazilian Grand Prix where history was made for Red Bull as Sebastian Vettel finished first place and team-mate Mark Webber came runner-up, giving Red Bull Racing their first ever World Constructors’ Championship. Sebastian Vettel also put his name in the history books by becoming the youngest ever Formula 1 driver to win the Drivers’ Championship.
In 2011, Sebastian Vettel was on form winning the Drivers’ Championship with four races to go making him the youngest double world Champion in Formula 1 history. Red Bull also won the World Constructors’ Championship for a second time in a row whilst Vettel broke the record for getting the most poles in a single season. 2012 was yet another year of success for the duo giving them their third consecutive World Constructors’ Championship and Drivers’ Championship.
So far this season, Sebastian Vettel is well on his way for a fourth consecutive Drivers’ Championship being on top of the leader board with a 36 point gap ahead of Fernando Alonso. The German has won 3 Grand Prix’s so far in Malaysia, Bahrain and Canada and has his mind set on winning many more. Vettel and Mark Webber are directing their team to another World Constructors title as Red Bull lead Ferrari by 56 points.
Recently, Sebastian Vettel mentioned that he might have a mind to retire from the sport in 5 years’ time, if it feels right. “Perhaps I will no longer be driving in five years’ time because I no longer have the urge to.” There was also talk at the beginning of the year that the 25-year-old might move to Ferrari, but the Italian team’s president revealed that as long as Alonso was at the team, there was no room for Vettel.
