Vettel looks to break Schumacher's Formula One mark
Sebastian Vettel will be focused on records and reconciliation this weekend when he seeks an eighth consecutive victory of the season at the U. S. Grand Prix. The newly-crowned four-time drivers world champion will overhaul fellow-German Michael Schumacher's all-time Formula One record if he is triumphant again at the Circuit of the Americas.
Seven-time champion Schumacher set his mark of seven wins in the 2004 season for Ferrari.
Only Italian Alberto Ascari has a better record, winning nine consecutive races during the world championship's Formula Two era in 1952-53.
Michael Schumacher, turned down an offer from Lotus to drive the final two races of the season as a replacement for Kimi Raikkonen, reported Xinhua.AFP
