This week, Formula 1 arrives in Singapore to compete in the seventeenth round of the 2022 world championship, the track on which the quadruple world champion Sebastian Vettel won his last victory in F1.
392 days after winning his last race at the 2018 Belgian Grand Prix, four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel won the 2019 Singapore Grand Prix at the wheel of his Ferrari, it was his 53rd premier class victory and the last to this day. The German – who was not spared by the media in the last weeks before the Singapore Grand Prix due to several mistakes made on the track – signed his one and only victory of the 2019 season that day.
It was thanks to a premature pit stop that Sebastian Vettel managed to clinch his first victory of the year ahead of his teammate Charles Leclerc, who was very unhappy at not having had priority to execute the first stop, when he was leading the race (I also invite you to click on this link to read the summary of the 2019 Singapore Grand Prix).
The current Aston Martin driver – who will retire from the sport at the end of the 2022 season – therefore remains the last winner in Singapore at present since Formula 1 has not returned to this urban track since 2019 due to of the Covid-19 pandemic.
