SportsDash: Can anyone stop Sebastian Vettel?

Nov 1, 2013, 3:00 PM EDT

After clinching his fourth straight world championship in India last weekend, there seems to be no way of stopping Sebastian Vettel. The German driver is quickly establishing himself as one of the all-time greats in Formula One, but just how far can he go? Is he really able to better Michael Schumacher’s long-standing records of seven world championships and ninety-one race wins?

NBC’s Leigh Diffey debated the matter on SportsDash with David Briggs ahead of this weekend’s Abu Dhabi Grand Prix where Vettel is aiming to clinch his seventh straight win. You will be able to see whether or not he can continue his winning streak live on NBCSN from 7:30 am on Sunday (and watch it and qualifying on NBC Sports Live Extra).

    F1 needs PARITY. I can pick who the top 3 teams will be for the next 5 years with this set up. It’s just not enough excitement.

    How about some sort of “playoff format”?

    F1 is too sterile now.

    There is TOO MUCH PARITY.

    Gone are the days cars looked different and innovative ways to race are brought to the track.

    F1 should mandate the engine size only and not the construction of the engine.

    Mandate the size and construction of the safety cage (large enough for a six foot four driver weighing 240 pounds) ,the TOTAL weight of the car high enough to discourage starving drivers to meet it) and not the construction of the car.

    let these crazy designers get back to bringing -what the hell is that?!-to the track to race.
