Michael Schumacher and Sebastian Vettel added a record sixth Race of Champions Nations Cup to their impressive tally as the Germans beat the French duo of Romain Grosjean and Sébastien Ogier by a score of two to nil, finishing the tournament undefeated.
Having an uninterrupted streak of victories stretching back to 2007, the Schumacher/Vettel pairing – accumulating a nifty 10 Formula One World Championships between them – were the best in the field in the sweltering heat of Bangkok’s Rajamangala Stadium. They made quick work of their group, defeating India, Australia and Thailand and booking their place in the semi-finals alongside the Aussies. In the other group, France topped the board despite both Grosjean and Ogier losing one race each, finishing on four points ahead of a Team All-Stars featuring Tom Kristensen and MotoGP World Champion Jorge Lorenzo.
After the French duo’s victory over the All-Stars, Germany dispatched the Australian pairing of Jamie Whincup and Mick Doohan with a clean two-nil win to set up the final showdown with Grosjean and Ogier. Despite the latter being the 2011 Champion of Champions, there was nothing the French could do to stop another clean sweep by the all-conquering Germans.
With Schumacher and Vettel confirming their desire to come back to defend their title in 2013 during post-race interviews, it will take some special effort to dislodge Germany from the top spot of the podium.
