Current Ferrari F1 speedy Vettel was crowned the Champion of Champions at the ROC on saturday, following beating nine-times Le Mans winner Tom Kristensen.

The individual knockout segment of the challenge, the German saw off opponents including WRC champion Petter Solberg, Le Mans winner Nico Hulkenberg and veteran Scot David Coulthard to book his place in the final against Le Mans legend Tom Kristensen.

“Of course I’m very happy and honoured to win – but that took a while! A lot of world class racing drivers have won this trophy. I’ve tried to win this many times and failed many times but finally I’ve succeeded,” Vettel was quoted as saying by Sky Sports.

“What the Race of Champions gives us is a lot of joy. When we were kids starting to race, we did it for pure joy and this sort of event is a good reminder of that. When you close the visor, ultimately victory is still what drives you. But I’ve tried to win this so many times, today was more like a surprise.

“We all know this format is very difficult because no one gets much time in the cars so you need to find your rhythm quickly. Today I had the feeling I found it straightaway. It was very cold but it was a great atmosphere so thank you very much to everyone for coming to watch.”
