Sebastian Vettel's 5th Pole in a Row
Sebastian Vettel currently holds the F1 World Champion having won in the 2010 Formula 1 season. On the last F1 race of 2010 in Abu Dhabi, Sebastian Vettel had the least probability of winning among 5 contending drivers but everything fell in place on his end. He also currently holds the record of the youngest driver ever to win the Formula 1 World Championship at the age of 23 years and 134 days.
Is it the car or is it also the driver? Red Bull team won Constructor's championship and their cars were doing really well.
On the recent Turkish Grand Prix, Sebastian Vettel set his own personal record of 5 pole positions in a row. The last driver who set pole on 5 consecutive races was Fernando Alonso in 2006.
The late Ayrton Senna had the most consecutive pole positions having pole 8 consecutive times. Ayrton Senna is also regarded
as one of the greatest drivers of all time.
Is Sebastian Vettel on his way to Ayrton Senna's level? He indeed had a great performance on track last season that still resumes up to this years races. He also cruised his way to a perfect race last Australian Grand Prix 2011 feeling unthreatened with his 22 second gap from Lewis Hamilton.
There's still a dozen more races left for this year's 2011 Formula 1 race and we may be witnessing another historic moment for Sebastian Vettel.
