Sebastian Vettel is F1’s youngest World Champion thanks to his 2010 Drivers’ crown and became the youngest double title-winner after securing a second championship last year (2011). He holds the record for most pole positions in a season, his 15 poles eclipsing those set by Nigel Mansell in 1992. He’s led more laps in a season, 739, than any other driver in history. And there are almost a dozen more ‘youngest’ records that Seb, now a senior driver entering his fifth full season as an F1 racer, would probably rather were left to the annals of the sport. In short, Sebastian’s just a little bit special.
