Calcutta: Sebastian Vettel, the reigning F1 champion, who scripted the perfect race in Sundays Grand Prix, will be back in India within six weeks.
Not to set the Buddh International Circuit ablaze, yet again, but to receive the F1 World Championship drivers trophy presented by the Federation Internationale de Automobile (FIA).
The presentation is going to be in New Delhi on the evening of December 9, during the annual FIA awards, being held in India for the first time.
Significantly, the awards ceremony will be preceded by the FIAs general assembly, which is also going to be held in India for the first time.
Yes, its a first for India, confirmed Vicky Chandhok (father of Karun), the Federation of Motor Sports Clubs of India president. Speaking to The Telegraph on Monday, he added: Vettel will be coming...
The World Championship constructors trophy is going to be presented as well, to the Renault-powered Red Bull Racing, which has given Vettel a dream machine.
Red Bull Racing and Vettel had taken the top honours in 2010, too.
This year, Vettel has already won 11 of the 17 F1 races and it wont surprise if he adds to his astounding tally in Abu Dhabi and Interlagos (Brazil).
Vettel finished second in four races, third and fourth once each. No wonder he doesnt want 2011 to end!
The record for the maximum wins in a single year is held by Vettels compatriot, Michael Schumacher (who else?), who won 13 of the 18 races in 2004.
