Formula One: Schumacher was more dominant, concedes Vettel
SUZUKA, Japan (REUTERS) - Formula One world champion Sebastian Vettel has rejected comparisons between his current dominance with Red Bull and the days when Ferrari and Michael Schumacher had the sport in a stranglehold.
Vettel, who can win his fourth title in a row at the Japanese Grand Prix on Sunday, has won the last four races after taking three pole positions in a row.
In Singapore last month, the 26-year-old German was some two seconds a lap quicker than his rivals.
Such a dominant display prompted Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton to suggest after last weekend's Korean Grand Prix that Vettel's success was sending some fans in Europe, who got up early to watch the Asian races, back to bed because they already knew who was going to win.
