In the same year he helped Red Bull win the team's first World Constructors' Championship. He followed up his first championship with a second in 2011, becoming the youngest double as well as youngest consecutive champion. Vettel started his career as BMW Sauber's third driver at the 2006 Turkish Grand Prix and was confirmed as BMW's test driver during the 2007 season. At the 2008 Italian Grand Prix, Vettel became the youngest driver in history to win a Formula One Grand Prix. After the season had finished Vettel was named Rookie of the Year at the Autosport Awards. Vettel holds numerous other 'youngest' Formula One records, among them: the youngest driver to have taken part in an official practice session of a Grand Prix, to score championship points, to lead a race, to secure pole position, and to win a race. Vettel holds the fastest lap-time for a Formula One driver on BBC2's Top Gear programme in the "Star in a Reasonably-Priced Car" segment, with a lap of 1:44.0, beating previous holder Rubens Barrichello.
