About Sebastian (unsourced)[edit]

  • For me he was already the surprise of the season. But what he demonstrated, in these weather conditions, making no mistakes and dominating from the beginning was completely top class.
  • Vettel amazes me: he’s such a little fellow; he’s got virtually no definition in his arms or legs at all; he looks like he could barely hang onto a Formula 1 car, let alone drive it so quickly. He’s clearly quite a stringy, powerful little man. He looks like a boy sometimes in his shorts wandering around the track and having a look at it on a Thursday, but Vettel is flying.
    • Martin Brundle, Malaysia 2008

Martin Brundle: “Vettel fourteen seconds clear. What a supreme drive from the 21 year old.” James Allen: “I’m not even gonna bother asking you at the end of this race who the Driver of the Day is, ‘cause I’ve a feeling it’s a question of, is he the Driver of the Season?” Martin: “Yeah, but I tell you: the kid’s gotta change his attitude with the media. He’s happy, he’s friendly, he answers your questions, he shakes hands with the sound man, he shakes hands with the camera man and the interviewer and thanks you for the interview. He’ll give Grand Prix drivers a bad name.
