Vettel wins F1's season-ending Brazilian GP for ninth consecutive victory

Johannesburg, Nov 25 (ANI): Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel won the Brazilian Grand Prix on Sunday to chalk up the 13th of the Formula One season and the ninth victory in a row.

According to Sport24, Vettel is the first driver to win nine successive races in a single season although Italian Alberto Ascari strung together nine in a row over two campaigns in 1952-53.

The 26-year-old German's victory equalled compatriot Michael Schumacher's 2004 record with Ferrari of 13 wins in a season, the report said.

Australian teammate Mark Webber bowed out of the sport with second place, anchoring a Red Bull one-two in his 215th and final race for the champions, with Ferrari's Fernando Alonso third, the report added.

Vettel and Red Bull had secured their fourth successive drivers' and constructors' titles last month, according to the report. (ANI)
