Can Vettel Rule Again
Reigning F1 world champion Sebastian Vettel was having a tough season up to now.  The youngest driver ever to win the World Drivers' Championship, Vettel has won the championship in 2010 and 2011.  The German racer was born on 3 July 1987, in West Germany.  He belongs on the zodiac sign Cancer.


2006 was a critical season for Vettel.  He also joined the BMW Sauber team as a third driver in the 2006 Turkish Grand Prix.  Vettel's impressive testing debut was an indication of the way the young racer was going to be in the near future.  He also set the fastest time in second Friday Free Practice before the race.  The next year, he was confirmed as a test driver for BMW.  Vettel soon got an opportunity to replace Kubica in the United States Grand Prix as Kubica was injured in a severe accident.  Beginning at seventh place on the grid, he ended the race in 8th position.   He was aged 19 years and 349 days.

2007 using Torro Rosso was a challenging and difficult year for the German racer.  He couldn't manage a podium finish but handled a career best of 4th in the Grand Prix.  Red Bull owner Dietrich Mateschitz saw the makings of a star in Vettel and has been quoted saying, "Vettel is one of those young men with extraordinary possibility.  He is fast, he's smart, and he is very enthusiastic about the technical side. "

In 2009, Vettel began racing for Red Bull and replaced with the retired David Coulthard.  He continued with Red Bull at 2010.  With wins in the Malaysian Grand Prix, the European Grand Prix, Brazilian Grand Prix and the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, Vettel took home the driver's championship and became the youngest F1 world champion ever.   He surpassed his own record of accumulating the highest number of championship points in a year by top in the 2011 championship with 259 points, despite seven races left!  When there's one man who's hell bent on smashing records, its Vettel.

This year , Vettel remained in Red Bull and continued his partnership with Webber.  With two races over, Vettel has not had a fabulous beginning, but there's time for Vettel to creep his way back to the top.   His behaviour at the Malaysian Grand Prix was criticised by several and in this rain influenced race he finished 11th following a collision with Narain Karthikeyan.  Post-race Vettel had criticised Narain's driving and called him an "idiot" and Karthikeyan hit back, calling Vettel a "cry baby".  Karthikeyan is however, eager to put the spat behind him and proceed.

Vettel remains a strong competitor but he refuses to create any promises.  Astrologically, chances are strongly suggested for Vettel and there is a risk that his performance will improve tremendously as the year progresses.  Tough conditions are signaled to emerge in the way though.  He needs to consider his feet and choose the proper decisions to retain his championship title.  Controversies are suggested beforehand, but Vettel needs to focus and allow his performance do the talking.
