Vettel closes in on consecutive wins record
12 April, 2011
Apr.12 (GMM) Sebastian Vettel has a chance of eclipsing one of Michael Schumacher’s most impressive records of consecutive grand prix wins.
In 2004, between May and August, Michael Schumacher’s seven-race winning streak with Ferrari entered the record books, alongside Alberto Ascari who also won seven races in a row for the Maranello team in the fifties.
At Sepang last weekend, reigning world champion and 23 year old Vettel won his fourth grand prix on the trot, dating back to the penultimate race of 2010 in Brazil at Interlagos.
Bild newspaper told Vettel about the Schumacher and Ascari records upon which the German reigning world champion replied, “Really? Only seven?”
