Media impressed but team scolds 'idiot' Vettel

Global Motorsport Media

With his second consecutive title now wrapped up, Sebastian Vettel is continuing to impress the international media.

The Red Bull driver secured his crown recently in Japan with a third place but quickly returned to the top step of the podium in Korea last Sunday.

"He is now chasing after Schumacher's record of 13 wins in a season," said Italian daily La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"The celebrations at Suzuka did not rob Vettel of his determination," added the report.

Other publications were also impressed with Vettel's determination to win even without the goal of a championship.

"He is hungry for more success and never satisfied," praised Corriere dello Sport.

Agreed Tuttosport: "Vettel is a cannibal, like his hero Schumacher."

It's really stupid from my side but now I've got it, I'm happy

The German's will to keep his foot on the throttle even with the title wrapped up was demonstrated by his unprecedented pace on the last lap in Korea.

"I think they (the team) will kill me now," joked Vettel afterwards. "They came on the radio and said 'idiot, you got it (the fastest race lap)'.

"It's a small thing; it's probably more to do with the ego because there are no points (for it) so it's really stupid from my side but now I've got it, I'm happy."
