Sebastian started his career in 2003 when he was in open-wheel racing, winning the 2004 German Formula BMW Championship with altogether 18 victories from 20 races. In 2005, Sebastian was in the fifth position, winning the top rookie honors at Formula 3 Euro Series. The same year, he signed his first promotion as a test driver for Sauber in Formula One but was unable to bag the championship.
Things, however, changed in the year 2007, when he was confirmed as BMW's test driver for a year. He got his first win at the 2008 Italian Grand Prix, becoming the world's youngest F1 race winner ever after breaking the record of Fernando Alonso.
Sebastian became more confident after winning 11 Grands Prix out of 19, taking the pole position 15 times. He became the youngest back-to-back champion, which went on until the year 2014 when he encountered some difficulties. But later that year, Sebastian left the Red Bull team and joined Ferrari to begin the 2015 season. He, however, finished in third place in the year 2015 and fourth in the year 2016 with about seven podiums and 212 points.
Sebastian maintained his 100% podium success, having won in Australia and Bahrain and extending his lead to 13 points. Since 2010, his salary has received a hike of about 21% over the past few years. His net worth is estimated at $140 million.
