NEW DELHI (REUTERS) - Sebastian Vettel has the talent to surpass Michael Schumacher's record seven Formula One titles after becoming the sport's youngest quadruple champion, said Red Bull team boss Christian Horner.

Vettel, 26, chalked up his 36th career win in 117 races at the Indian Grand Prix on Sunday to seal his fourth successive crown.

"His win record is quite incredible," Horner said when asked whether Schumacher's records looked vulnerable.

Schumacher won 91 races, with Benetton and Ferrari, from 307 starts.

"There's so many things in this sport that determine that. It depends on being in the right machinery as well, but from a skill point of view, there's absolutely no reason why not,"Horner added.

"I think Sebastian has grown this year. The way he's driven, the level at which he's delivered, it's been his best-ever year. He's raised the bar continually," he noted.
