Sebastian Vettel has a chance of eclipsing one of Michael Schumacher's most impressive records.

In 2004, between May and August, Michael Schumacher's seven-race winning streak entered the record books.

Alberto Ascari also won seven races in a row for Ferrari, in 1953/53.

At Sepang last weekend, reigning world champion and former 'Baby Schumi' Vettel, 23, won his fourth Grand Prix on the trot, dating back to the penultimate race of 2010 in Brazil.

Bild newspaper told Vettel about the Schumacher/Ascari record and the German replied: "Really? Only seven?"
