Vettel aims for Schumi season wins record
27 September, 2011
Sep.27 (PVM) In 2004 Michael Schumacher won 13 grands prix on his way to his seventh and final Formula 1 world title. This year his fellow countryman, Sebastian Vettel, has notched up nine victories so far this season and with five still to go could claim the record for most wins in a single season.
With his win in Singapore, Vettel has matched Nigel Mansell’s 1992 record of nine victories in one season. Schumacher’s records are now in his sights: 11 wins in 2002 and the big one: 13 wins in 2004.
Vettel needs to win all five remaining races to accomplish the feat in Formula 1.
