Sebastian Vettel has been awarded European Sportsman of the Year gong, as voted by members of the International Sports Press Association, and becomes the twenty- eighth recipient of this award in its history.
The German – who became the sport’s youngest ever World Champion in 2010 – pipped French sprinter Christophe Lemaitr by a single vote to take a top spot, and beat third-placed tennis star Raphael Nadal by five votes.
Vettel is just the second f1 driver ever to pick the award, with the other being his compatriot and seven-time World Champion Michael Schumacher, who has won the award on four separate occasions.
