Nov. 25 (Bloomberg) -- Sebastian Vettel of Red Bull clinched a third straight Formula One drivers’ title with a sixth-place finish at today’s Brazilian Grand Prix.

The 25-year-old German is the youngest-ever three-time winner. His nearest rival in the standings, Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso, came second behind McLaren’s Jenson Button in the 71-lap final race of the season at the Interlagos circuit in Sao Paulo.

Vettel had a 13-point lead on Alonso going into today’s race. He’s the third man to win three titles in a row after Michael Schumacher and Juan Manuel Fangio.

Vettel surpasses Ayrton Senna’s mark as the youngest three-time champion. The Brazilian was 31 when he achieved the feat in 1991.
