Sebastian Vettel claims that superior teamwork could be the key to his unlocking the Formula One world championship and overtaking Jenson Button and Rubens Barrichello in the final two races.

The young Red Bull driver remains resolute and refuses to give up on his title chase while he still has a mathematical chance of victory. Speaking exclusively to German broadcaster RTL, a defiant Vettel said, “Anything is still possible so I’m not giving up.

“The goal is simple: to win the next two races,” he added. “Everything else is not in our hands, that makes the whole situation relatively easy for us.”

Vettel added that the drivers’ relationship between their respective teammates could prove crucial in the final run-in. "I think we have an advantage. We work very well together as a team and over the whole year we’ve had less disruption internally.

“Unfortunately, Mark cannot fight for the world championship, which is the case for Button and Barrichello,” he explained. “As a racing driver you have to be selfish. Both Jenson and Rubens want to be the first and that could be a big advantage for us.”

But regardless of any other driver’s strategy, Vettel told RTL he was in no doubt about the scale of the task ahead and delighted by the team’s performance this season. “Regardless of what happens in the next two races, it was a great season. It was the best season of the team of all time.

“I'm motivated down to the tips of my hair and I think we can do it.”
