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.
