BERLIN (AFP) - Formula One fans want to see four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel lose to make Grand Prix races more appealing, Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone said in an interview on Wednesday.

"Many people want to see Vettel lose because it would finally make it (the World Drivers' Championship) more exciting again," the 83-year-old Ecclestone told German daily Bild.

The 26-year-old Vettel is looking to win his fifth straight world title when the season starts with the Australian Grand Prix on March 16.

The German was booed at some races last season when he won 13 of the 19 races.
