Biography. Born and raised a Bull, then a Prancing Horse, and now the face of Aston Martin’s Formula 1 revival, F1's poster boy of early achievement had won more than all but two drivers in history by the time he was just 26, including back-to-back world titles between 2010 and 2013. Vettel’s trademark is pure pace – and of course his one-finger victory salute.
