“It’s a fantastic feeling to be here tonight and to be able to take this trophy back home for another year. As I said last time, it isn’t something you want to give back,” Vettel told FIA.

“Winning the title with Red Bull Racing three times in a row makes us all feel very proud. This was a season with lots of ups and downs and the team had to push hard to get me over the line. In the garage and at the factory everyone did an incredible job, and the support we had from Renault was also great.”

“This is a phenomenal achievement for our team,” said Horner.

“The hard work and the dedication this year have been exemplary – but I think hard work and dedication have been common up and down the pit-lane in this fantastic Formula One season. It didn’t seem possible we could raise our game after last year but I think we have.”

“The team has used every scrap of their skill and ingenuity; they’ve had the courage of their convictions and have refused to buckle under the most enormous pressure. I’m honoured to collect this trophy on their behalf.”
