Kicking off the greatest rivalries with a rivalry that had quite a few intense moments. Sebastian Vettel came into F1 with him being a new superstar. Vettel joined Red Bull in 2009 and immediately showed his superiority in 2009. The rivalry really got heated during the 2010 Turkish grand prix. Vettel tried to pass Webber for the lead, he cut infront of Webber and the 2 collided with Vettel retiring. Vettel was furious with Webber. However the 2 looked to be all good in the run-up of the British grand prix in 2010. However things escalated again, Vettel broke his front wing in practice, he got Webbers front wing against Webber's wishes. Webber was furious, he turned the fury into pace as he won the British grand prix on Sunday. When he crossed the finish line he said: Not bad for a number 2 driver. Webber was clearly not impressed with the preferential treatment of Vettel. Webber did lead the championship in the final rounds despite a crash in Korea after he tried to chase down Vettel in the rain. Webber told the media in Brazil that he felt that Red Bull wasn't behind him and that he wasn't meant to be in the title hunt. Vettel responded with: if he needs help he should see a medical car. Vettel eventually won the title in Abu Dhabi but he didn't lead the championship once during the season. Vettel excelled after the 2010 season and went on to dominate 2011. Vettel was fighting with Alonso for the 2012 title. Webber got clear team orders from Horner before the race, don't held up Vettel. Webber squeezed Vettel on the start of the Brazilian grand prix which lost him a few places. Vettel then got hit in turn 4 by Bruno Senna. Vettel was furious and took his revenge in Malaysia 2013. The famous Multi 21 incident which meant that Webber was meant to win the race infront of Vettel. However Vettel still furious from Brazil didn't listen and full on attacked Webber. The 2 nearly collided multiple times but Vettel in the end won the race. Webber was raging in the post

After six weeks not racing due to bereavement And only 5hrs proper sleep in 36hrs, I knew the first round LGM in GYG was going to be a tough race! Practice day was pretty good, only 2tenths off from the front runners which was quite impressive after traveling almost 30 hrs from South Africa, landed in Edinburgh at 16:20 on Friday...2hrs later I was on my way to GYG! Race Day - I was on the pace, kart felt good. Just a shame that i was punted from the back in all heats. Highlight was my third heat when I started from the back 30 and finished 5th 😃. But the main highlight was being punted from the back three times in the final and the third hit earned me a cheeky fastest lap 🤪😂🍓.

Today is the perfect day to reflect about how can we help preserve the environment and all the animals living in this beautiful planet! Yes, the Earth is our home, but it's not only ours... There're millions and millions of species that need us to look after their home, and it's responsibility of every single one of us to take care of it. Is the human being the only one responsible for all the destruction and terrible things that animals and their environments are having to suffer all around the world, so NOW it's up to us stop this happening! 🤚🏽 #happyearthday! 🌎❤ #lh44 . . . #lewishamilton#mercedesamgf1#formula1#f1 @mercedesamgf1 @lewishamilton .
