Dominant Vettel seizes world title
Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel of Germany during the qualifying session at The Buddh International circuit in Greater Noida on the outskirts of New Delhi on October 26, 2013
Pole-sitter Vettel pitted early to change his soft tyres but then roared through the field to win 30 seconds ahead of Mercedes's Nico Rosberg, with Lotus driver Romain Grosjean third.
The 26-year-old German becomes the youngest man to win four straight titles, with Juan Manuel Fangio and Michael Schumacher the only other drivers to achieve the feat.
"Unbelievable day," said the jubilant Vettel over the team radio. "We did it! Yes! Yes!"
Vettel celebrated in spectacular fashion by spinning doughnuts in front of the grandstand. He then stood on top of his Red Bull and saluted the crowd before bowing to his car in mock worship.
Despite team-mate Mark Webber's retirement with a mechanical problem, Red Bull also sealed their fourth straight constructors' title in what has become an era of dominance.
