Sebastian Vettel shows no signs of slowing down
The weekend saw Sebastian Vettel returning to his winning ways and the young driver claims that is a state of affairs which he intends to maintain for the rest of the season.
Although the German driver has shown little signs of faltering in his quest to retain his world championship title, Vettel managed to bolster his chances with a victory at the Belgian Grand Prix over the weekend.
The title now looks as if it is very much Vettel's to lose, as a one-two Red Bull finish gives him a 92-point lead in the drivers' championship and there is only a mere 175 points to be taken from the final seven races of this season.
Despite the incredibly strong position that Vettel currently finds himself in, he is attempting to keep a cautious head on his shoulders in regards to his world championship prospects.
"If you are out in two races and someone else has a good couple of races, it could change," said the young Red Bull driver.
"So all we do is try to get the optimum every time."
His most recent victory gave Vettel his first win at the historic Belgian track in the Ardennes mountain, and his seventh of the twelve races that have taken place so far this season.
"There are seven races to go," he said. "There are still a lot of points available.
"It's our seventh win, our 12th pole, we've got a 100% finishing record, but we don't underestimate our rivals and there'll be no complacency and heads down focused on the next race. We won't change our approach."
Victor Chandler currently offer 15/8 odds that Sebastian Vettel will go on to win the impending Italian Grand Prix; meanwhile, BetFred and Sky Bet set their odds at 13/8.
