Vettel puts his name in for this year’s Race of Champions

Vettel became the youngest driver ever to win the Formula 1 world championship when he took his first title in a last-race thriller in 2010. He has since cemented his place among the sport’s all-time greats by following that with three further triumphs in the next three seasons. After his switch to Scuderia Ferrari at the start of this year, Vettel made an immediate impact yet again.
First he reached the podium on his debut in Australia, then he took the team back to the top step with a fine victory at race two in Malaysia. Four further podiums have since firmly established his status as the main challenger to this year’s leading Mercedes of Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg.

Vettel also has an impressive record at the Race Of Champions. He made his debut at London’s Wembley Stadium in 2007 and duly partnered his countryman Michael Schumacher to ROC Nations Cup glory for Team Germany. The pair went on to keep the trophy until 2012 with victories in Beijing, Düsseldorf and Bangkok, leaving them with a record six consecutive ROC Nations Cup wins.
Now Vettel is back for another Race Of Champions in London, this time at the former Olympic Stadium – though he will sadly need a new partner in the ROC Nations Cup as Michael Schumacher continues his rehabilitation from injuries suffered in a skiing accident late in 2013. Drivers already confirmed for ROC 2015 include nine-time Le Mans 24 Hours winner Tom Kristensen, reigning FIA World Rallycross Champion Petter Solberg and current ROC Champion of Champions David Coulthard.
