Abu Dhabi: Sebastian Vettel improved 21 positions from his starting slot on the grid on Sunday -- the biggest jump by any driver since fellow-German Christian Danner finished fourth at the United States Grand Prix in Phoenix in 1989.
Then, Danner drove his Rial Ford from 26th to fourth. Vettel started 24th in his Red Bull car and finished third at the Yas Marina Circuit in Sunday's Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
"It was a crazy race.," said Vettel. "It's hard enough to get through the field once, but we did it twice. We were in quite a good position, but I was surprised by Daniel Ricciardo's move and I was caught out.
