Sebastian Vettel can make his 100th Formula One race the United States Grand Prix an historic one by being crowned the youngest ever triple world champion.

The 25-year-old German, and his Red Bull team, could make it a double celebration if they take both the drivers’ and teams’ titles in US where he made his debut as a 19-year-old stand-in at Indianapolis in 2007.

That last United States Grand Prix, five years ago, was won by Briton Lewis Hamilton of McLaren and, this time around, he will once again be a major contender for victory in his penultimate race for the team before he leaves for Mercedes.

But they face a challenge this weekend from two-time champion Spaniard Fernando Alonso of Ferrari who is 10 points behind the German in the title race and still convinced he can secure his own third title.AFP
