The Formula One’s number one driver Sebastian Vettel will have something to prove after choosing his number for the rest of his driving career. The current number one representing the Red Bulls initially chose number five which would have marked his aim for the fifth title but later he changed his mind and opted for number one.
According to the new rules and regulations a driver would not be able to change his car number every year. From now on or rather from this season they will have to choose a number they think is the best or lucky and stick to that for the rest of his career. The experts think that this will allow the drivers to market themselves more effectively than ever before. The four time champion will be looking to defend the championship and would also want to justify the number he has chosen for his car.
Sebastian Vettel’s other team mate from the Red Bulls Daniel Ricciardo decided to choose number three for his first season and he will try to achieve the all conquering marquee in his debut year. Last year runner up Fernando Alonso has also revealed the number he has chosen for his car and it is number 14.
He has lots of memories for this number 14 which takes him back to the karting days when he first won it at the age of 14 and on the date of 14th July. In addition to that he is also fond of the Real Madrid midfielder Xabi Alonso who also wears number 14. Hence the decision. Jenson Button of McLaren will ride on a number 22 which is lucky for him because that was the number which he had in 2009, the year when he won the championship for the first time. Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes will sport the number 44 and Nico Rosberg his team mate has taken number 6.
