Lewis Hamilton has backed Red Bull Racing rival Sebastian Vettel to claim a fourth successive world title next year, with the future Mercedes driver expecting Chief Technical Officer Adrian Newey to design 'another amazing car' for the German.
Vettel secured the 2012 Drivers' crown by three points at the final race in Brazil, confirming him as the youngest ever triple World Champion in Formula 1 history.
"It's going to be hard to beat Sebastian next year," Hamilton told Sky Sports of his predictions for the 2013 campaign. "I think Sebastian's going to have another amazing car. The car he had this year was fantastic. It's going to be an evolution of that next year.
"Adrian only seems to get better with age. I think he's going to do something pretty special next year as well."
Vettel, who is preparing to enter a fifth season as a Red Bull driver, currently holds a 25.7 percent success rate in Formula 1, picking up 26 victories from 101 starts.
