AUSTIN TX – Motor Sport – Sebastian Vettel won the Circuit of the Americas race today. The victory was Seb’s eighth straight win of the season. This sets a new record for a single season, and passes Michael Schumacher‘s 2004 benchmark.
Vettel said, “It’s the day after, normally on the Monday, when you feel what you have achieved. It’s a great feeling, you have a grin on your face and it’s nice”.
“On Sunday things happen fast and you don’t always realise what has been achieved until later. It’s down to team effort today. Everyone is willing to push; this morning the guys were working hard as we had some concerns about reliability on the car, so they were flat out trying to fix the problem and the car ran okay all race, so a big thanks to them”.
“I’m not sure what we have done since the summer break in order that we have been winning races” continued Vettel, “But whatever it was it has worked. When you are a sports man, not every day is supposed to be a good day and you have ups and downs. Certainly you feel the points when you are low, they hurt more than when you are on a high, of course you enjoy those times, but I kept saying that there’s no guarantee for the next race or the one after that or after that! You never know what is coming next, so you have to enjoy today and look forward to tomorrow”.
