World champion Sebastian Vettel is not finished with Formula One’s record books just yet.

His dominant win in Sunday’s Abu Dhabi Grand Prix was his seventh in a row — matching Michael Schumacher’s feat in 2004 — and 11th of the season that leaves him 130 points clear of his nearest rival.

At 26, the Red Bull driver is the youngest four-time F1 champion and by the end of November he could have matched two more records.

Kimi Raikkonen has been excluded from qualifying after his car failed a floor deflection test in Abu Dhabi. He will be allowed to start from the back of the grid.

In Hungary, a similar thing happened with Romain Grosjean, but the stewards accepted that the floor was damaged.

However, this time the circumstances were different — in effect, the stewards noted it was not the first time it had happened and the issue should have been addressed — and thus the car was deemed to have failed to comply with the regulations.
