Vettel prepares for 100th Grand Prix start
12 November 2012 – Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel will hit a milestone in Austin on Sunday, with the German preparing to make his 100th Grand Prix start. After his initial debut for BMW Sauber in 2007, he switched to Toro Rosso to begin his full-time Formula 1 career.
Ahead of the final two races in America and Brazil, Vettel is remaining grounded and admits that 'anything can happen' before the very last chequered flag falls.
"The tyres keep results up in the air until the very last metres of the race. When you are in the hunt you still can turn it around and when you are in the lead you can still lose it!"
Vettel's Grand Prix debut came at the United States Grand Prix of 2007, when he substituted for the injured Robert Kubica who was recovering from a heavy crash.
