After managing to win three F1 world championship titles, Sebastian Vettel could be forgiven for lacking the motivation ahead of the 2013 F1 season. However, the German driver has confirmed that he is very much looking forward to winning his fourth consecutive title. The 25-year-old has managed to take the F1 world by storm by managing to win three titles in a row. He recently sealed his third title by a narrow margin in the final race of the season at Brazil. Vettel has said that his desire to be top of the world has not been quenched yet.
The 20-year-old managed to win the title last season by a narrow margin of just three points. Many have criticised Vettel for not sealing the championship at a much earlier stage of the season despite having the strongest car on the grid. However, the German produced one of the best performances of his career in the final race of the season in Brazil to finish ahead of Fernando Alonso in the table. In the process, he also helped Red Bull win the constructors championship as well. Vettel’s championship victory was almost taken out of his hands by the appeal from Ferrari, which was later withdrawn.
“I want us to be as successful in 2013 as we have been this year and the previous two years. Personally, I have never had to simulate motivation – that is part of my nature. Right now it is nice to savour the title win and everything that goes with it, but what stays in your memory much more than anything else are the steps that got you there: the nervousness on the grid at the first race, the stress when it didn’t work out as planned, the podiums – all these moments stay in your head forever,” said Vettel.
