130922153739-vettel-trophy-horizontal-galleryRed Bull Racing team Principal Christian Horner says that they won’t dramatic climax like last year that hints they need secure Vettel’s fourth consecutive title before the final race in Brazil.

Last year the dramatic scene appeared in first lap the German was spin and following he send back from order, finally he recovered and finished on sixth its secure his third title by just three points ahead of main title contender Fernando Alonso.

Currently championship leader Sebastian Vettel 60-points ahead of main title contender Fernando Alonso, also the maximum 150 points available from the remaining six races in rest of the season.

“It is not our responsibility to take it to the last race, which hopefully won’t happen this year,” Horner quoted by Autosport.

“We have had two bloody close ones that I don’t want to go through again. After Brazil last year I now have several grey hairs, and Abu Dhabi two years earlier is about as stressful as it gets.

“The important thing for us is winning. We are trying to defend both titles and our job is to try to do that as soon as possible.”

“At one point I thought he had found a short cut, because his pace advantage was so significant, of course you have got the benefit of running in clear air, but we saw on Friday that the car was very quick here. He added.

“The only time that we really unleashed him was in the window after the safety car when we said, ‘OK, we need to build a gap, but I don’t think any of us expected that he would be able to hit 30 seconds in 15 laps or whatever it was that he managed to turn around.

“We have made progress with the car, and Adrian [Newey] and his team are doing an incredible job balancing between the current development and the 2014 challenges.

“The high downforce circuits were not our strong point earlier in the year and it is testimony to the technical team and the hours that are going in that we have come to a maximum downforce track and we have been right on the pace.”
