Sebastian Vettel has labelled the Brazilian Grand Prix of 2012 his most difficult race ever. Needing a top four finish to seal an historic third world crown, the German found himself last after being spun at only the fourth corner on the opening lap.
“That was an incredible race,” the Red Bull driver said after recovering to sixth position. “They just tried everything to make it difficult for us today! When you get turned around at Turn 4 like that, for no apparent reason, it’s not the most comfortable feeling! I was quite lucky that nobody hit me (when facing the wrong way in the middle of the track).
“I think that was probably the toughest race ever, but we just kept believing. People tried dirty tricks and some things really were beyond the limit, but we didn’t let them distract us and just gave a big push until the end.
"This weekend, people have tried to say it wouldn’t work out for us if it rained, but we’ve proven that we like the wet as much as the dry. After about ten or 20 laps I was fourth or fifth and right behind Fernando (Alonso).
“But how do you keep calm?! You just push and push and make a comeback.”
Vettel is only the third man in history – after Juan Manuel Fangio and Michael Schumacher – to win three world titles consecutively. He now becomes the youngest triple World Champion, taking that mantle from the late Ayrton Senna.
