Interlagos, BRAZIL, November 24th, 2013 (F1Plus / Bruno Ferreira) - After dominating the Brazilian GP this Sunday, at Interlagos, Sebastian Vettel said he feels sad that the season is over. The German driver had an impressive performance in the second half of this championship and easily won his fourth world title in F1, also setting the record of most consecutive victories in an F1 season (nine) and equalling Michael Schumacher's reord of 13 wins in a season.

The German hailed Red Bull’s performance in the second part of the season. “I’m actually quite sad this season comes to an end. I think the last couple of races, really since the summer break, to win every race is unbelievable. The car has been phenomenal, just kept getting better,” he said.

Vettel lost his lead to Nico Rosberg at the start of the Brazilian Grand Prix on the start, but got the lead back at the end of the first lap. From then on, he cruised to victory, crossing the line 10 seconds ahead of his teammate Mark Webber.

“Today was a very interesting race. The start was obviously quite bad for me. I had lots of wheel-slip and didn’t get the initial launch off the line as good as I was hoping for. I had a poor start but then I was able to come back straight away in the first lap, build a gap which was nice to control”, said the German.
