Sebastian Vettel has told Autosport that he can still improve as a driver. Vettel became the youngest 3-time world champion in history this year at age 25. The previous youngest was Ayrton Senna, at 31. Vettel also became only the third driver in history, after Juan Manuel Fangio and Michael Schumacher, to win three titles in a row.
"In terms of results, the last three years and winning the constructors' championship have been perfect but I still feel that there are little bits here and there we can improve on," he told Autosport.
In fact, while much of the focus had been on Fernando Alonso's extraordinary efforts this year, a turning point for the impression Vettel made on his critics came at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, when he climbed up from the back of the grid and finished third. He did it again - finishing fourth - at the Brazilian Grand Prix, and thus silenced critics who had said he had to start up front of the grid to win a race.
