Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel is relishing the chance to win his third successive world championship title this season.

Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel has expressed his excitement at the prospect of winning his third world championship title in a row.

The 25-year-old will head into this weekend's US Grand Prix 10 points clear of Ferrari's Fernando Alonso at the top of the standings.

"It has been a very long year - a tough season up and down, extremely challenging, different to previous years in many ways, we learned a lot and we did less mistakes this year," BBC Sport quotes the German as saying.

"We have a very competitive car - we had one since the beginning of the season, maybe sometimes not good to win, but still good enough to collect a lot of points.

"It put us in a strong position, we are able to fight for championship with two races to go. It would mean a lot [to win the title] but it's difficult now to find the right words."

Vettel won the world championship title in 2010 and 2011.
