Former triple time world champion Niki Lauda says that Vettel will not continue longer fighting for his fourth title because he already holds 46-point lead over Alonso.
Also eight races remain this season, and other main things existing title rivals Mercedes and Ferrari are not powerful in the field, still they are finding consistent performance.
In last September 2012 he was appointed non-executive chairman of the Mercedes F1 Team. He took part in the negotiations of signing Lewis Hamilton to a three-year deal with Mercedes F1.
“Vettel is no longer fighting anyone. I am committing myself: he will be World Champion in Abu Dhabi, the third last race.
“His lead is already big enough after Spa, where he dominated even though the Red Bull was not really suited to the track.
“His best circuits are still yet to come. Red Bull won’t be the favourite at Monza but on all other circuits he has the best car.”
