Footnotes

  • After starting in second position on the grid, Vettel had a strong start and by the end of turn one he took race lead. He went on to win the race – his first home victory since he started in Formula One. 2013 has been another great year for the racer as he secured his fourth consecutive World Driver's Championship title with a victory at the Indian Grand Prix.

    Wings for Life.

    Wings for Life provide funds for cutting-edge research projects and clinical trials across the globe aimed at accelerating progress towards a cure for spinal cord injury.

    Since Wings for Life was first founded, 82 spinal cord research projects have been funded at the world's most well respected institutes and a number of vital breakthroughs have been made.

    The charity is supported by many ambassadors who promote their work including Infiniti Red Bull Racing's Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber.

    The developments in research so far provide strong hope that treatment options are closer than they have ever been. However, intensive research work will be needed before a breakthrough in human medicine can be achieved.

    When you support Wings for Life, 100% of the money you donate will go to directly to spinal cord injury research as the charity's founders generously cover all of the administrative costs.
