Vettel wins first F1 India Grand Prix
Formula One World Champion Sebastian Vettel won in the inaugural Indian Grand Prix at the Budh International Circuit, Noida, in front of 95,000 spectators. He set up the fastest lap on the track in the final lap of the race. He secured his second world title in Japan three weeks ago and Sunday won his 11th race of the season.
Vettel speak: “Coming to India has been an inspiration. A great learning experience; The really surprising bit for us… where sometimes you measure happiness in our lives, in our world, with what you have achieved, what you have etc. For the people here, it doesn’t really matter, they are happy with what they have, even if you compare they have so little, but they are happy and friendly, helpful, respectful.
“The people have so little here I think in a way they are much richer than a lot of people back in Europe so there is a lot we can learn. They enjoy life and in the end that’s what count.”
