Vettel will not change approach in India
14 October 2013 – Sebastian Vettel says he will be arriving in India with "winning on my mind", despite the knowledge that he only needs a fifth place finish to secure a fourth world title.
The Red Bull driver, who has won the past five races, currently sits 90 points ahead of Ferrari rival Fernando Alonso, with 100 more up for grabs at the final four rounds.
"I will race there with winning on my mind," Vettel told the official Formula 1 website when asked if he will push for another win or adopt a different strategic approach.
Vettel went on to explain that he will not get carried away with the situation ahead of next weekend's race, the German insisting a top five finish is far from guaranteed.
"Nothing is easy - not even P5 - and nothing comes for free," he said. "There is always a huge amount of work involved. And it is never our style to say, 'Well, let's focus on finishing fifth.' We always attack as much as we can - it is in the DNA of the team."
Red Bull can also secure a fourth straight Constructors' title in India, providing Ferrari do not outscore the outfit by 20 points or more or Mercedes by 30 points or more.
