Vettel leads from start to finish for third time in row

IT SEEMS nothing can stop Sebastian Vettel as he shoots to become the youngest three-time Formula 1 world champion in history.

Sunday's victory in the Indian Grand Prix, his fourth win in succession, was the first time since Ayrton Senna in 1989 that a driver had led an F1 race from start to finish three times in a row.

The 25-year-old has now led for the past 205 laps, and could add another 55 to that mark in Abu Dhabi this weekend.

The record of 305 laps is held by Italian dual world champion Alberto Ascari.

Vettel leads the driver's championship on 240 points from Fernando Alonso (227), Kimi Raikkonen (173) and Mark Webber (167).
