And then amidst the cheer, Vettel ran in any direction that seemed right, threw his gloves over to overjoyed fans, climbed barricades on both sides, waved, did a namste, and bowed to his Heidi. It is a sight that won’t be forgotten ever.
He was joined on podium by car designer Adrian Newey, to whom Vettel owes much of his success. And most amazingly, all of this was was part of much frenzy, fervour and cheer rather than the boos that have been directed in Vettel’s direction. Sportsmanship at the the podium was just as uplifting when Nico Rosberg and Romain Grosjean carried Vettel on their shoulder in his winning moment.
