Sebastian Vettel won his first race at Monza back in 2008. 2008 is known for a fight between Ferrari and McLaren, with races being covered by the two protagonists. Sebastian came out of nowhere and won his very first race in a car not quite worth it. Anyhow, Vettel went on to win the race and even started it from the pole. That day started the journey of a young star that came out later on to become a so-called villain.
Sebastian won his first race and only for Toro Rosso, Red Bull’s sister team. But that win was more special because the sister team won their first race before the main team did. Red Bull later went on to sign the young talent with a good sense of humour and turned him into a historic driver. Vettel started his career as a reserve driver for BMW but got an opportunity to drive for Toro Rosso next season. Lewis Hamilton, his friend, won his first title that season.
Sebastian later went on and signed his first contract with Red Bull which took off his career to another level with his skills being in power with the car.
