In the midst of the adrenaline rush and drama, Formula One has seen its fair share of heart wrenching emotional moments. We list out the top 10 of them.
10. Emotional title victory
Sebastian Vettel headed to the 2010 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix very much the underdog for the drivers’ title. Alonso and his teammate Mark Webber led the way, with the German 15 points behind the leader.
However, both Alonso and Webber were hampered by traffic mid-race and were unable find a way through. They took the chequered flag in seventh and eighth respectively. Vettel meanwhile put in a stunning drive to snatch the championship from under their noses. It clearly meant a lot to the German who went on to win 3 more.
