PROFILE
Sebastian Vettel

If there is one driver who stands close to obliterating legend Michael Schumacher's innumerable Formula One records, it's Sebastian Vettel. Youngest to become a champion, then double, triple and quadruple, 'Baby-Schumi', as he is fondly called, has set the ball rolling to make his way to the top on the all-time list. He has however upset many with his ruthless streak, which also involved 'stealing' a win, in his unquenchable thirst for victories. Derided by fans with boos during several podium ceremonies further highlighted his unpopularity, laced with feeble arguments that his victories were simply credited to the cars. Vettel has now started a campaign to be his own man. Having quit the comfort of Red Bull, he switched alliance to Ferrari, a team he was always tipped to race for ever since his first F1 win in a Ferrari-powered Toro Rosso in 2008. His struggles began with the introduction of the new regulations in 2014. But he had contributed immensely to Adrian Newey's vision at Red Bull and there's no reason to believe he cannot do the same at Ferrari. His four titles are not enough, but he has created a perfect set up for him to shadow the original legend that is Michael Schumacher.
