Sebastian Vettel moved within sight of becoming the youngest triple world champion in Formula One history on Sunday when he cruised to his fourth consecutive victory with an outstanding, dominant triumph in the Indian Grand Prix.

The 25-year-old German, winner of the title in 2010 and 2011, delivered the 26th win of his career in utterly convincing fashion, leading the 60-lap race from start to finish in his Red Bull car.

His triumph enlarged his lead in the drivers championship from six points to 13 with three races remaining in Abu Dhabi next week, then the United States and the season finale in Brazil next month.
