New Delhi: Formula One's blue-eyed boy Sebastian Vettel won the Japanese Grand Prix in an emphatic fashion to seal his fifth consecutive win on the trot. Now, Indian fans have the delicious prospect of watching the undisputed German champion seal his fourth title in their own backyard.

The race for the title this year has hardly been close with Vettel showing not just raw speed and deft skills like before but a new-found maturity as well. It is this maturity that will further bolster his chances at the Buddh International Circuit - a track where he has won both times since F1 touched Indian shores.

Considering F1 won't be making a return here next year, local fans are expected to cheer the race even harder - the ones backing Vettel being the loudest of the lot. Their hero, after all, needs a fifth-place finish or better to book yet another driver's title. And going by how Vettel has tackled the much-appreciated track at Greater Noida, all bets are likely to be placed on him.
