The stage is set at Buddh International Circuit for the coronation of a four-time world champion as Sebastian Vettel looks set to join some prestigious company in India today, requiring a top five finish to complete his quartet of titles. Despite storming to pole position and appearing to be in a league of his own all weekend, Vettel’s dominance may be under threat thanks to a variety of different strategies being used throughout the field, with teammate Mark Webber being the leading qualifier on the medium tire in fourth. However, championship rival Fernando Alonso could only qualify eighth, meaning that the odds are well and truly stacked in Vettel’s favor.
