If Friday's fastest driver Jenson Button wins on Sunday, and runaway championship leader Vettel crashes again, the title fight will move on to Korea.

On the other hand, Red Bull's Vettel - the back-to-back Japanese Grand Prix winner - needs only to finish tenth to guarantee his second crown.

"I had a good reminder in practice not to start thinking about something else," he admitted on Friday.

"It was not really a big mistake, but maybe at that moment I was not 100 per cent awake, and mistakes around here can be quite costly."
