In 2010, he created history when he became the youngest driver ever to win the Formula One World Championship.

Ahead of the Qatar GP, a fan asked Vettel how he became a star – but the driver was very modest while answering him. The German said:

“A star like us? I don’t know, I don’t consider myself a star at all. I don’t think that racing drivers are stars. We are what we are. We are racing drivers. I fell in love with the sport at a very young age and I’m still loving it today. I think that is what drives me so it is not really anything else.”

“Surely, there are lots of nice things that I have experienced through the job or through that life but the key thing is that I fell most in love with driving.”
