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.
