Sebastian Vettel wins his second Indian Grand Prix
Vettel won his fourth consecutive Grand Prix of the season after clinching the Indian Grand Prix for the second year straight. He has taken a 13 point lead in the drivers standings, but the competition is tougher compared to last year for the drivers' championship.

SEBASTIAN VETTEL came up with a repeat performance in the Indian Grand Prix, similar to last year, where he took the chequered flag. With this victory the Red Bull driver from Germany showed his class by clinching the title and taking an all important lead in the F1 drivers standings table to 13 points, where he has amassed 240 points. Fernando Alonso is close to his heels with 227 points. It is either of the two drivers who has a greater chance of walking away with the title.

It was Vettel, Alonso and Mark Webber who finished in the podium, first, second and third respectively during the concluded Indian Grand Prix. Vettel, while driving in this race showed F1 fans around the world, as to why he is considered to be one of the best drivers of the season and his consistency during the season, especially of late is for everyone to see. He was at his menacing best driving full speed in the BIC straight and making the hair pin turn look easy. Overall, it was a perfect display by the German driver.

Vettel looks in perfect shape for another driver's championship with three more races to go. He has won the last four Grand Prix races, which talks highly about the confidence of the driver. Though, the driver may have started on a slow note by only winning one race in the first 13 races, but he has peaked at the right time - when it matters most. If Alonso is to snatch the title away from the German, Alonso has to take his driving skills to another level, take more risks and expect Vettel not to finish races.

As far as the team standings are concerned, Red Bull is clear favourite with 407 points on the table and their closest rivals are Ferrari, who are more than 90 points adrift from the champions. Vettel won an impressive 11 races last season to win the championship, but a lesser number of wins will be enough this season, as the championship has seen greater competition than last year. Vettel won the title last season with 392 points compared to the runners up, Jenson Button's 270 points. Vettel still needs to be at his best to win the championship. He can't take other F1 drivers for granted.
