Updates for Season 2012

2011 – The season that was

It was, in that well-worn sporting cliché, a season of two halves: that is, if you call one half Sebastian and the other half Vettel.

In a 19-race season (shortened by one when the political unrest in the Middle East led to the cancellation of Bahrain’s Grand Prix), the 24-year-old German won 11 times and became the youngest driver ever to claim back-to-back World Championship titles.

Seven fastest laps, one win and third in the World Championship

Mark dominated the Brazilian Grand Prix to take the seventh win of his career and his second at Interlagos. He came home 17 seconds ahead of his Red Bull Racing team-mate Sebastian Vettel.

“It was a very positive way to end the year,” said Mark. “It was my second win at the track, following my victory in ’09, and I put in a pretty tasty drive. I’d like to dedicate the win to Bob Woods, a close family friend, who’s very ill at the moment. This win is for him.”
