Vettel becomes the youngest driver to earn point!

Sebastian Vettel was delighted after becoming the youngest driver to claim a point in Formula One by finishing eighth at Sunday's US Grand Prix.

Vettel, 19, was making his debut as a replacement for Pole Robert Kubica who was told to rest by doctors after a crash in Canada last weekend.

Jenson Button was previously the youngest driver to secure a Formula One point, earning his when he was 20.

"It was fantastic, great fun," said Vettel. "I tried to prepare myself for this kind of task. So in the end, I knew this could happen. It's just a question of where and when. As a reserve driver, you always have to be fit."

Well done Vettel!
