2008 Italian Grand Prix

First win

The moment Sebastian truly announced himself to the world of Formula One. Driving for the midfield outfit Toro Rosso, the German took an unexpected pole position. On Sunday, he converted his pole to victory despite challenging conditions. An effortless drive that meant the young German claimed his first, flawless Grand Prix win - the first for his team - at the age of just 21.

Formula One
New dawn

2009 Chinese Grand Prix

Another win in messy, wet conditions – this time for his new team, Red Bull. Sebastian’s victory broke Brawn GP’s dominance at the front and signalled the beginning of a title-chasing charge. The first of 38 wins for Red Bull, and a major sign of things to come. A future champion's drive...

Formula One
The crown

2010 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

It was one of Formula One's greatest showdowns - four drivers entered the 2010 season finale at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix with a chance of winning the title. Sebastian kept his cool in the battle with Fernando Alonso, Lewis Hamilton and team-mate Mark Webber. A straightforward win – but proof that the youngster could handle the pressure.

Formula One
Leading light

2011 Monaco Grand Prix

On the streets of Monte Carlo, Sebastian kept the chasing Fernando Alonso and Jenson Button behind as he put in a masterful drive to look after a set of old tyres. Closing down every avenue and boosted by a late stoppage, it was Sebastian who prevailed in Monaco during his successful 2011 campaign.

Formula One
True dominance

2013 Indian Grand Prix

Sebastian led Red Bull to a period of incredible dominance and, while the machinery he drove provided a platform, he was able to perform at incredible levels. It’s hard to choose a standout from so many dominant races during his Red Bull era, but few can match the 2013 Indian Grand Prix. Sebastian took pole position by 0.752s before a dominant lights-to-flag victory, in which he finished 29.8s clear of second place and secured his fourth world title.

Formula One
On form

2015 Malaysian Grand Prix

Sebastian switched to Ferrari for the 2015 season in a bid to revive the Italian team and he made an immediate impression by winning on his second race for the organisation. It was all the more impressive considering Sebastian's victory came amid a run of Mercedes dominance, earning Ferrari a first win in two years.

Formula One
A new era

Sebastian signs up

Ahead of the new era as Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One™ Team, the Silverstone-based team signs the four-time World Champion, a statement of intent for our goals. The German's incredible experience of race-winning and title-winning machinery makes him the ideal candidate to lead the team as Formula One's new technical revolution gears up for 2022.
