The Vettel Karusel

The Vettel Karusel

At only 21 years of age, Sebastian Vettel has been honoured with his own corner at the Nurburgring.

He is the youngest driver to ever qualify on pole, lead, and win a Formula 1 Grand Prix, and he is barely in his 20s - an achievement which has earned him a permanent tribute at the infamous Nurburgring.

'Vettel corner' will be located on a corner of the Grand Prix circuit, which adjoins and connects to the Nordschleife 'ring.

His turn is number six of the GP track - six-time F1 champ Michael Schumacher's name adorns turns nine and 10.

"This is a big honour," said Vettel of the decision.
