Sebastian Vettel's Korean Grand Prix victory was the 20th of his Formula 1 World Championship career, and drew him level with another double champion; Mika Hakkinen, on the sport's all-time winners list in 12th place.
As has been so often the case in 2011 though, it is a long way from being the only significant statistic achieved by the German at Yeongam.
• Vettel's front-row start in Korea was his 15th of the year, leaving him just one shy of the outright record, jointly held by Ayrton Senna (1989), Alain Prost ('93) and Damon Hill ('96).
• The German's 10th victory of 2011 makes him only the second driver in history to reach double figures in a single season. The other, unsurprisingly, is his compatriot Michael Schumacher, who won 13 times in 2004 and on 11 occasions in '02.
