BMW CONGRATULATES F1 WORLD CHAMPION SEBASTIAN VETTEL
BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt says: â€œCongratulations to Sebastian Vettel on the successful defence of his Formula One World Championship title. This is just one more highlight in an extraordinary career, which began in Formula BMW. His career is the best possible evidence of the success of the Formula BMW concept. The blonde boy from back then is now a two-time world champion â€“ a role model for any junior drivers following in his footsteps in the Formula BMW Talent Cup. Sebastian has shown that, with a mixture of talent and the right support, it is possible to reach the very top of the sport. We hope he continues to be successful for a long time.â€?
Vettelâ€™s route to the top took him via the Formula BMW championship, which he won in style in 2004 with 18 victories in 20 races. The most successful Formula BMW driver to date also claimed 14 pole positions and set 13 fastest laps. The talented young driver also made his Formula One debut with BMW. In 2006 he was named test and reserve driver for the BMW Sauber F1 Team and went on to become the youngest driver ever to win a World Championship point at his very first race outing in Indianapo
Vettel has never forgotten his roots and still enjoys a close association with Formula BMW. At the end of 2010, in the week following his first World Championship success, he visited the scholarship course for the 2011 Formula BMW Talent Cup in Cartagena, Spain. Whilst there, he was more than happy to offer the participants of the BMW promotion programme helpful tips and advice.
Alongside Vettel, the 2011 Formula One season also featured a further seven drivers who learned their trade in Formula BMW: Nico Rosberg (DE), Bruno Senna (BR), Timo Glock (DE), Adrian Sutil (DE), Sergio P?©rez (MX), S?©bastien Buemi (CH) and Daniel Ricciardo (AU).
