9 October 2011, 10:25
Sebastian Vettel - who drives for the Milton Keynes based Red Bull Racing Formula One team - has become the youngest driver to win F1's world championship two years running.
The 24 year old finished second in the Japanese Grand Prix on Sunday 9 October 2011 but that was enough for him to clinch the Drivers' Championship title.
Britain's Jenson Button won the race. Lewis Hamilton came fifth.
Asked to sum up his thoughts on his latest title triumph, Vettel puffed out his cheeks and said "It's difficult. I don't know where to start.''
"We made such a fantastic start to the season but today's race was not that easy, not as good as we hoped to be on the soft tyres, but a a strong result again.
"To win the championship here is fantastic, and there are so many things you want to say, but it's hard to remember all of them.
"We've so many fantastic people working very hard, pushing hard to build these two cars, to fight for the points and championships.
"We've found ourselves in a very strong position and it's great to achieve the goal we set ourselves at the start of the year.''
