Formula One: Best yet to come, warns Vettel

BERLIN - German driver Sebastian Vettel warned on Tuesday that his best is yet to come just days after becoming the youngest back-to-back world championship title winner in Formula One history.

The 24-year-old sealed the title after finishing third in the Japanese Grand Prix.

Vettel won last year’s crown in the final race of the season but this year wrapped it up with four to go - Korea next Sunday, New Dehli, Abu Dhabi and Sao Paulo.

“I find it sad that people say ‘it’s over, you can’t do better.’ For me the best is yet to come in life,” Vettel told the Bild, a Geman tabloid.

“People often say they’ve reached their zenith but it’s never the case for me. I’ve found a passion in life that I want to live. It’s fabulous,” he said.

“And the best this season is that it’s not over yet.”

Although he admitted that it was “still difficult to come to terms with” his achievement he placed his second title on the same footing as the first, “even if there is always something special like for my first victory at Monza,” he added.

Meanwhile, the Ferrari team principal said Tuesday the Italian Formula One stable will welcome Vettel from 2014.
