List of Formula One Grand Prix wins by Sebastian Vettel

German racing driver Sebastian Vettel of Aston Martin Racing has won 53 Formula One Grands Prix and four world championships.[1] He entered Formula One in 2007 with BMW Sauber, in place of the injured Robert Kubica at the United States Grand Prix, finishing eighth to become the youngest driver to score a world championship point in Formula One.[a][3] Midway through the season, Vettel joined Toro Rosso for the rest of the year and 2008. Vettel moved to the Red Bull Racing team in 2009, and won his first world championship in 2010, a season in which he became the youngest ever world drivers' title winner.[1] Vettel won four titles in a row with Red Bull from 2010 to 2013, which made him the youngest driver to win two, three and four world championships.[4] After an unsuccessful year in 2014 in which he did not register a single victory, Vettel activated a clause in his contract allowing him to leave the Red Bull team.[5] He moved to the Ferrari team in 2015, twice finishing runner-up to Lewis Hamilton of the Mercedes team in 2017 and 2018.[1]

His first Grand Prix win came in the rain-affected 2008 Italian Grand Prix on 14 September; Vettel became the youngest driver to win a Formula One race at 21 years, 2 months and 11 days.[b][7][8] He won four races in his first season with Red Bull in 2009 and finished runner-up to Jenson Button. Vettel took a further 34 victories with Red Bull in his four world championship winning seasons.[1] His 2013 season included 13 Grand Prix victories, which equalled seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher's record for most wins in a season.[9] Vettel also took nine consecutive wins that year, from the Belgian Grand Prix to the Brazilian Grand Prix to equal two-time world champion Alberto Ascari's record from 1952 to 1953.[10][11] The 2014 season was the first since his debut year that Vettel did not achieve a race victory. He won three races in his first season with Ferrari in 2015 and none in 2016. This was followed by five victories each in the 2017 and 2018 seasons, one in 2019 and none in 2020.[1]

In all, Vettel has won 53 Grands Prix at 21 different circuits; the majority of his race victories (38) came with Red Bull; he has also won 14 races with Ferrari and 1 for Toro Rosso.[12] His most successful circuit is the Marina Bay Street Circuit, the host track of the Singapore Grand Prix, where he has won 5 times, with 8 podium finishes in 12 races.[13][14] Vettel's largest margin of victory in his career was at the 2013 Singapore Grand Prix, a race where he finished 32.627 seconds ahead of the second-placed Ferrari of Fernando Alonso,[15][16] and the smallest margin of victory was at the 2011 Spanish Grand Prix, where he beat McLaren's Lewis Hamilton by 0.630 seconds.[17][18]
