Marko in no rush for Vettel's title seal

Global Motorsport Media

Dr Helmut Marko insists he is in no rush to see Sebastian Vettel capture the 2011 championship.

The Red Bull driver, who has won the past three races on the trot, needs just a single point at Suzuka in two weeks to secure his crown

with four races still to run.

And if McLaren's Jenson Button fails to win in Japan, 24-year-old German Vettel will automatically be champion even if he doesn't finish

the race.

Team advisor Marko, a former F1 driver from Austria, is understandably cool.

"Whether we get the world title here (in Singapore) or in Japan or in Korea, it is no different to me," he told German television.

I feel capable but I still have to do it

Vettel is not yet publicly declaring his certain championship even if McLaren's Martin Whitmarsh finally conceded late on Sunday: "It's

over".

"I feel capable but I still have to do it," commented Vettel. "Obviously with the races that we've had so far, it should not be a big

problem but it's over when it's over and not before."
