Formula 1 2012 Season Review

FORMULA 1® 2012 SEASON REVIEW

F1®’s 63rd season was a belter: eight drivers won races, from six different teams, and once again the Championship chase went right down to the wire with that heart-stopping finale at Interlagos. Now we need to fill in the gap till they arrive back in Melbourne in mid-March, so let’s start with a look back at another super season.


DRIVER OF THE YEAR

Yes, we know Seb won the title again, and it was his third in a row, and he’s the youngest driver to achieve that feat. But for once it wasn’t all about Vettel.

Vettel scores 11th World Title for Renault Sport F1

Renault Sport F1 celebrates their third back-to-back Constructors’ World Title in the FIA Formula One World Championship™ after a dramatic Brazilian GP.

Renault-powered Red Bull Racing driver Sebastian Vettel had secured the points he needed in the USA to win his third Drivers’ World Title in as many F1 seasons, becoming the youngest-ever consecutive triple World Champion.

Renault has powered Sebastian to all three of his titles and all but one of his 26 career wins and 36 pole positions.
