Sebastian Vettel's home town is planning a big celebration in the event that he is crowned world champion on Sunday.

Heppenheim town officials are holding off on finalising the plans, but organiser Adi Doersam told the DPA news agency that a motorcade could take place.

"It is possible, I am positive," he said.

In reality, German Vettel's championship chances are relatively slim. If he wins in Abu Dhabi, Fernando Alonso must finish in fifth or worse for him to be champion.

And if Vettel finishes second on Sunday, Alonso would have to be ninth, and teammate Mark Webber fifth, for the 23-year-old German to win his first title.
