The 2009 Chinese Grand Prix was a challenging affair due to heavy rain, turning the track into an aquaplaning nightmare. But Vettel, in only his third race for Red Bull Racing, delivered an immaculate performance. Remember, he had already become the youngest-ever Grand Prix winner the previous year with Toro Rosso at just 21 years and 74 days old.

For team owner Dietrich Mateschitz, it was a sweet taste of victory in the fifth year of Red Bull Racing’s existence. And as for young Vettel, he couldn’t stop smiling.
