Vettel refuses to take title win for granted

Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel is refusing to take winning the world title for granted. The German is only in need of one more point to secure the world title, after winning the Singapore Grand Prix.

"I feel capable but I still have to do it," he said. "Obviously it should not be a problem but it's over when it's over and not before.

"Statistics are on our side, but this story has to wait to be closed."

"Seb was so dominant in the first half of the race," said Red Bull team principal Christian Horner.

"At the end he took no risks, we wound the engine down, he was careful going through the traffic. Jenson pushed but I'm sure Seb could've responded if he needed to."

Vettel added: "I did make it clear (to the team) before the race that it's not important to know where the other people were.

"Crossing the line I didn't know whether it was enough or not - a little bit like Abu Dhabi (last year, when he clinched the title at the last race of the season).

"I didn't know where everyone had to finish. Obviously for the next one I am smart enough to work it out myself."

Vettel could become the youngest double world champion in Formula 1 history, but Jenson Button still has a mathematical chance of stopping him.
