Niki Lauda: 'Vettel will win championship at Abu Dhabi'

Niki Lauda thinks that Sebastian Vettel can wrap up the drivers' championship after Abu Dhabi.

Former Formula 1 champion Niki Lauda has revealed that he believes that world champion Sebastian Vettel could wrap up the 2013 title as early as the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Lauda said that with Vettel ahead in the championship it is only a matter of time before he takes yet another world title.

"I would go so far as to say Vettel will be the world champion in Abu Dhabi, which is the third to last race," Lauda told Bild.

"His points lead was already big when he dominated at Spa, even though the Red Bull is not really suited to this track. Ok, maybe for Monza he is not the favourite, but on every other circuit he has the best car. It is more than enough for him."

Vettel has won the championship for the past three seasons.
