It's clear to see why Vettel cherishes his 2010 championship so dearly. Not only was it his first one in the sport, but the way in which he won it by just four points to Fernando Alonso was special in itself.
Heading into the final race of the season in Abu Dhabi, Alonso was leading the championship by eight points from Mark Webber, with Vettel sat 15 points behind Alonso in third.
Vettel started on pole and came through to take victory and, with poor results from championship rivals Webber and Alonso, managed to win the title.
