Sebastian Vettel fought his way to his 10th victory of the season at the Indian Grand Prix this evening, in the process wrapping up a sensational 4th consecutive World Driver’s Championship. The success was sweetened further by his team Red Bull Racing also wrapping up their 4th Constructors’ crown.
Vettel’s celebrations began early as he set the Buddh International Circuit’s tarmac alight with a series of donuts in front of an adoring crowd, following an exciting race which witnessed a mix of tyre strategies.
The German’s race was a perfect execution of a strategy which called for him to scythe through the traffic following an early stop. He was comfortably ahead of teammate Mark Webber who was on the diametrically opposite plan in 2nd, prior to a gearbox failure on the Australian’s car putting him out of the race.
