Formula One: Red Bull's Vettel laughs off cheating allegations
YEONGAM, SOUTH KOREA (AP) - Formula One's runaway championship leader, Sebastian Vettel, is laughing off allegations that the team is illegally using traction control to gain a big advantage on its rivals.
The German has a 60-point lead heading into this weekend's Korean Grand Prix and appears certain to win a fourth-straight title.
His huge speed advantage in the previous F1 race in Singapore prompted former team boss Giancarlo Minardi to allege Red Bull is using banned traction control to gain a cornering-speed advantage.
"We are pretty proud of the system and other have to figure out how we have done it," Vettel said. "That is part of the homework they have to do."
