Greater Noida: Sebastian Vettel has cruised to victory in the first two editions of the Formula 1 Indian Grand Prix. And it is no surprise that the Red Bull driver is confident of completing a hat-trick at the Buddh International Circuit (BIC) here next weekend and seal the world title for the fourth year in a row.
"So far everything has always gone perfectly for us in India. There is also a very nice trophy at the end of the race - so it would be great to hold one again this year. It's a circuit that I like, in a country that is very, very impressive every time we go there," Vettel, who won the races from pole position, said in a team preview Friday.
He just needs a top five finish to secure the championship.
Talking more about the 5.14-km track, the German said: "It is not an easy track, because of a few complicated rhythm- breakers that are in there. The most difficult part is the uphill entry to Turn Three, because seeing the apex is practically impossible. So to drive a perfect lap around the Buddh circuit, you need a good driving instinct."
Lower tyre degradation was experienced at BIC in 2012, making Pirelli go for soft and medium tyre combination than soft and hard used last year.
