How Vettel can claim the title in India
27 October 2013 – Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel is on the verge of a fourth successive world title at the Buddh International Circuit, but what are the permutations? GPUpdate.net has put together a brief reminder ahead of what could be another historic day for Formula 1.
Vettel will claim the title if:
- Alonso wins, with Vettel fifth or higher
- Alonso finishes second, with Vettel eighth or higher
- Alonso finishes third or lower
- Alonso retires from the race
Red Bull can also claim a fourth consecutive Constructors' title, providing the Milton Keynes-based outfit leaves India with a 129-point advantage over its nearest rivals.
