Rising star Vettel is youngest F1 winner

Sebastian Vettel’s astonishing victory for Scuderia Toro Rosso in the Italian Grand Prix has rewritten the history books – and marked the young German as an obvious future target for top Formula 1 teams.

Reflections – Brundle says Sky coverage will be for the purists – Senna’s Williams ride removes Barrichello from F1 – Toro Rosso recruits know to whom they must aspire Although the 2011 Grand Prix season was dominated by Sebastian Vettel and his Red Bull RB7, I think most would agree that, in terms of racing, it was substantially a better year than for a long time.

Renault – A century

The circle is neatly completed as Renault — and its industry soulmate Michelin — carry the champion's number one in Formula One this season.
