Career History

Consistently out-qualified and out-raced by team mate Vettel, winning just one round (when Vettel hits technical issues) and finishing third overall, despite Red Bull dominance.
Turns around a slow start in the  ultra-quick RB6 with victories in Spain, Monaco,
Britain and Hungary to move ahead of team mate Vettel and lead standings
going into summer break. Loses out in four-way title showdown at season
finale thanks to poor pit strategy, finishing third overall.
Pre-season preparation is  hampered by broken leg sustained in a  winter cycling
accident, but form continually improves, culminating in maiden pole and
victory in Germany. Retirements in Italy and Singapore end his title hopes, but he takes a triumphant second win in Brazil.
The lack of Red Bull race pace means points rather than podiums become the
target and he scores 21 to finish 11th overall. His qualifying form is as excellent
as usual and he secures the team’s first-ever front-row grid slot (at
Silverstone). Retained for 2009.
Poor reliability makes for a largely frustrating first season at Red Bull,
with regular top-ten qualifying performances rarely translating to
points. Highlight is a third place at the Nurburgring. Finishes 12th
overall on 10 points.
Endures a tough second season with Williams. After retiring from more races than
he finishes,  he scores just seven points. Signs to Red Bull for 2007.
Lack of Williams competitiveness blunts his debut season with the British team.
Shines in qualifying with seven top-five grid slots, but race performances are less consistent with  a third in Monaco his sole podium appearance.
A difficult final season with Jaguar. He still scores seven of the team’s ten points but
the highlight of the season is a second on the grid in Malaysia. Signs for Williams for 2005.
Cements his reputation as one of the sport’s rising stars. Takes third on the
grid in Brazil and Hungary and scores all bar one of Jaguar’s 18 points, finishing tenth in the drivers’ championship.
Makes his debut with Minardi and has a dream start to his F1 caree by scoring fifth place in his first ever race. Puts in impressive performances through the rest of the season.
Finishess Second overall in the FIA International Formula 3000 championship having taken
three wins. Becomes a Benetton Formula One test driver.
Finishes third in the FIA International Formula 3000 championship with the Eurobet Arrows team.
Races at Le Mans with Mercedes AMG. The team is withdrawn from the event after aerodynamic problems are discovered.
Partners Bernd Schneider in the FIA GT Championship, runner-up with five wins.
Runner-up in the British Formula Ford championship.
