Vettel becomes youngest ever F1 Champion

Vettel kisses the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix Trophy

At 23 years and 106 days, Sebastian Vettel became the youngest ever Formula One champion. He was trailing Ferrari's Fernando Alonso by 15 points before the penultimate race of the season at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2010.

The Red Bull driver who started on poll had a trouble free race and lead from the start. Meanwhile, the other two championship contenders Alonso and Mark Webber faltered famously.

This win by Vettel is a triumph of sorts for fairplay  for the sport as it prevented Alonso from being a tainted Formula One winner after the debacle that Ferrari created during the German GP when Felipe Massa was ordered by Ferrari to let Alonso pass and win the race and gained an extra of 7 points.

When asked how it felt on becoming the youngest ever champion in the history of the sport, "
I guess this will sink in when I finally go to sleep but I think we will have daylight before that happens.
To be on that list now with drivers like Ayrton Senna and Michael Schumacher, well, I just don't know."

The previous youngest winner was Lewis Hamilton in 2008 who was 23 years and 306 days old when crowned champion.
