Sebastian Vettel has made history. Just when we all thought that no one could better what Michael Schumacher has achieved, along comes another German and does just that! 9 straight wins and what a way to do it, in Brazil, the final race. To all the critics that ever doubted Vettel as a driver, he has shown what he is made of, showing a masterclass of skill and dogged determination to be the best.
