The German has been backed by Red Bull for most of his motor-racing career, from 12 or 13 years old, and took his first race win with sister team Toro Rosso.

Both his titles have come at the wheel of a Red Bull and, now 13 points ahead of Alonso with three races to go, he is favourite to become the youngest ever triple world champion at the end of the year.

Team principal Christian Horner said Vettel and the team had a strong bond.
