Sebastian Vettel Crowned Formula One Champion

Seemingly against the odds, Sebastian Vettel raced himself into the history books in Abu Dhabi, becoming the youngest ever Formula One world champion.

Having already secured the constructors (team) title last weekend in Brazil, Red Bll Racing still had both their drivers in contention for the second title.

Seb lay behind both championship leader Fernando Alonso of Ferrari and his own team-mate Mark Webber in the standings. But, after gaining pole position on Saturday evening Seb never had to look back. While the progress of Mark and Alonso were hampered by an early pit stop which left them behind slower cars, Seb lead for the whole race to take victory and the world title.

Mr Mateschitz was there to see the man he and the Red Bull team had nurture from a boy in karting to become the best driver of 2010.

Afterwards team principal Christian Horner said: Its an unbelievable outcome. Seb has had some tough times and hes had his issues with reliability, but hes never lost his focus. Hes the youngest ever Formula One World Champion and a very deserving one. We mustnt forget Mark in all this and what an incredible job hes done this year. Hes driven superbly well. It could have gone to either one of them this year and its a great privilege to have these two guys in our team. Id like to thank every single member, all our suppliers, everyone at Red Bull and Dietrich Mateschitz for his unfaltering support. Its been a very, very big week.

Testing for the 2011 campaign starts this week in Abu Dhabi
