Amalgam Celebrates Sebastian Vettel's Career

Danke Seb!

Sebastian Vettel will be donning his racing boots and helmet one last time to bid farewell to Formula 1 this weekend at the final race of the season in Abu Dhabi. It brings down the curtain on a 15-year F1 career, in which Seb has won 53 races and established himself as one of the greatest drivers to grace motorsport's top echelon.

Debuting in 2006 with BMW Sauber, Sebastian displayed outstanding speed and talent from the outset. Driving for Red Bull Racing, he went on to win 4 consecutive World Drivers' Championships from 2010 to 2013 and he remains the youngest World Champion in Formula 1 history.

The whole Amalgam team would like to wish Sebastian the best of luck with his future ventures. Read on to join us in celebration of his outstanding career.

Danke Sebastian!

Sebastian's Career Captured by Amalgam

BMW Sauber F1.06 (2006)

 BMW Sauber F1.07

BMW Sauber F1.07 (2007)

Continuing as the team's test driver, Vettel replaced Kubica at the 2007 US Grand Prix after the Polish driver crashed heavily in Canada. He became the youngest driver to score F1 points, finishing in eighth position on the grid. Clearly too eager, he also set a record for collecting his first F1 penalty: speeding in the pit lane only six seconds into his debut.

Scuderia Toro Rosso STR2 (2007)

Scuderia Toro Rosso STR2 (2007)

BMW released Vettel to join Scuderia Toro Rosso later in July, as the German was already under contract to Red Bull Racing. He exhibited his potential in Japan, taking his car to third, before crashing into Mark Webber behind the safety car. Just a week later, Seb finished a career-best fourth at in Chinese Grand Prix.

Scuderia Toro Rosso STR3 (2008)

Scuderia Toro Rosso STR3 (2008)

After a tough start to the season in which he failed to finish the first four races, Vettel clicked into gear and became a consistent points scorer. Then, at a wet Italian Grand Prix, he became the sport's youngest pole-sitter and race winner, aged just 21 years and 74 days. It remains Toro Rosso's only win. Vettel was named 2008 Rookie of the Year at the Autosport Awards.

Red Bull Racing RB5 (2009)

Red Bull Racing RB5 (2009)

After his achievements in the slower sister team, Vettel replaced the retiring David Coulthard at Red Bull Racing. He secured his next win only three races into the season in China, it also being Red Bull Racing's maiden pole and win. He went on to win three more races in Britain, Japan and Abu Dhabi, claiming second place place in the Championship, finishing only 11 points behind Jenson Button.

Red Bull Racing RB6 (2010)

Red Bull Racing RB6 (2010)

Seb continued his fine form, winning another five races in 2010 including in Malaysia, Valencia and Japan, and earning five further podiums. He led a 1-2 in the penultimate race in Brazil, securing a first World Constructors' Championship for Red Bull Racing, but the last victory in Abu Dhabi was by far the greatest. Seb overturned a 15 point deficit to leader Fernando Alonso and 7 point gap to teammate Mark Webber to become the youngest Formula 1 World Champion and seal the team's first Drivers' Championship too.

Red Bull Racing RB7 (2011)

Red Bull Racing RB7 (2011)

Now the man to beat, Sebastian thrived under the pressure, taking victory in a stunning 11 out of 19 races, becoming only the second driver to achieve over ten wins in a single season. In the remaining eight races, he only missed out on the podium twice. Vettel also broke Nigel Mansell's 17-year long record of 14 pole positions in a season after clinching his fifteenth in the final race in Brazil. After such domination, it was no surprise he and Red Bull took their second successive Championship double.

Red Bull Racing RB8 (2012)

Red Bull Racing RB8 (2012)

The 2012 season was much more competitive as Ferrari, and McLaren brought the fight to the Red Bull dominance. Ultimately the season became a duel between Vettel and Fernando Alonso, both competing to become a three-time World Champion. After 13 races, the German was 39 points behind Alonso, but a streak of four consecutive wins catapulted him straight into the Championship lead. Entering the final race with a 13-point cushion over the Spaniard, Vettel fought back to sixth position after contact sent him spinning on the opening lap, claiming the Championship by a three-point margin. Seb became the youngest driver of only three drivers to win 3 consecutive titles, after Juan Manuel Fangio and Michael Schumacher.

Red Bull Racing RB9 (2013)

Red Bull Racing RB9 (2013)

Vettel made a strong start to the 2013 season, winning four of the opening ten races and opening up a 38-point lead in the standings. Ultimately, the season was defined by an incredible nine race win streak, that included grand slams in Singapore and Korea, to seal a fourth straight title double for driver and team. His nine wins set a record for most consecutive race wins, whilst he tied with Michael Schumacher for most wins in a single season. He also became only the third man after Alberto Ascari and Jim Clark to take consecutive grand slams.

Red Bull Racing RB10 (2014)

Red Bull Racing RB10 (2014)

A new teammate joined Vettel in Daniel Ricciardo as Mark Webber retired. 2014 was a reality check for the reigning champion as he struggled to get to grips with the RB10 and the new Pirelli tyres. The car's reliability was also inconsistent, and Vettel become the first defending champion to fail to win a race since Jacque Villeneuve in 1998. Late in the year though, a twist: Red Bull announced that Vettel would be leaving the team at the end of the season to join Scuderia Ferrari, one year before his contract was due to expire, replacing his former title rival Fernando Alonso.

Scuderia Ferrari SF15-T (2015)

Scuderia Ferrari SF15-T (2015)

In joining Ferrari, Seb had realised a career dream to walk in the steps of his idol Michael Schumacher. His debut saw him take a podium position in Australia, before he claimed the team's first win for two years in Malaysia. An emotional Vettel paid tribute to his hero after the race. He would go on to claim further victories in Hungary and Singapore. A dominant Mercedes team ensured there would be no look in for a title challenge this season, though he comfortably earned third place in the Drivers' standings, above his new teammate Kimi Räikkönen.

Scuderia Ferrari SF16-H (2016)

Scuderia Ferrari SF16-H (2016)

2016 was another challenging season for Seb, and again despite being competitive, was unable to take a victory this season. He instead earned seven podiums but both he and the team were leapfrogged in the championship by Red Bull and Daniel Ricciardo.

Scuderia Ferrari SF70H (2017)

Scuderia Ferrari SF70H (2017)

Vettel won the opening race of the season in Australia, his first victory in 18 months, and continued his strong form, finishing no lower than fourth in the first nine races. Unfortunately for Seb, title rival Lewis Hamilton began to dominate after the summer break, and hugely disappointing results in Singapore and Malaysia, where the team expected to perform well, hurt the team's chances. Ultimately, the gap became too large to overhaul and Vettel settled for second in the Championship. Ferrari had put together a genuine title challenge for the first time in five years, giving optimism for the future.

Scuderia Ferrari SF71H (2018)

Scuderia Ferrari SF71H (2018)

Dubbed the "Fight for Five", 2018 pitted two World Champions against each other for the first time, as Vettel and Hamilton contested again. Vettel again won the opener in Australia, which was his 100th podium, while he also became only the third man in Formula 1 history to have led over 3,000 laps. Vettel would add further wins in Bahrain, Canada, Britain and Belgium but, ultimately, it was the same story as the previous season: Ferrari and Seb were beaten by a more consistent and better performing Mercedes and Hamilton. Again, both team and driver finished in second position. 

*Please note the SF71H is currently available to purchase.

Scuderia Ferrari SF90 (2019)

Scuderia Ferrari SF90 (2019)

Alongside a new teammate in Charles Leclerc, the Ferrari team looked quick in 2019 but were unable to turn this pace into points and victories against a dominant Mercedes and resurgent Red Bull. Seb took a victory in Singapore, as well as eight further podiums, but finished fifth behind Leclerc in the World Drivers' Championship, being outscored across a season by a teammate for only the second time in his career. Singapore remains Seb's last victory in Formula 1.

*Please note the SF90 is only available to order in the Vettel nosecone at 1:12 scale.

Scuderia Ferrari SF1000 (2020)

Scuderia Ferrari SF1000 (2020)

Prior to the season, Ferrari announced they would not be extending Vettel's contract beyond 2020. The team then discovered problems on their car during pre-season, forcing a major redesign which simply lacked pace. Despite celebrating their 1000th Grand Prix during the season, Ferrari achieved their worst result since 1980, finishing sixth in the Constructors' standings. Seb ended the season in a disappointing 13th place, earning a solitary podium in Turkey. His 33 points is the lowest he has achieved in a single season. Seb would later announce he will be leaving the team to race alongside Lance Stroll at Aston Martin.

*Please note the Vettel Tuscan Livery SF1000 model is unavailable at 1:8 and 1:18 scale. However, the season livery Vettel edition of the SF1000 at 1:8 scale as well as the SF1000 nosecone at 1:12 scale are currently available to order.

Aston Martin AMR 21 & AMR 22 (2021-22)

Aston Martin AMR 21 & AMR 22 (2021-22)

Though his debut did not go to plan, picking up grid and race penalties, Seb eventually got to grips with his new car, earning his first points in Monaco, before scoring Aston Martin's maiden podium with a second-place finish in Azerbaijan. Vettel also finished second in Hungary but was later disqualified after his car failed to provide the one litre sample of fuel required. He ended the season in twelfth place in the Drivers' standings, ahead of teammate Stroll, also earning the inaugural Overtake Award with 132 overtakes during the season.

2022 has been a more challenging season for Seb, but he has again been a consistent points scorer and currently is set to battle McLaren's Daniel Ricciardo for eleventh position in the standings. He has almost certainly beaten his teammate again, barring a surprise victory for Stroll in Abu Dhabi. 

*Please note that Amalgam have not made a model of the Aston Martin AMR 21 or AMR 22.
