Another Vettel title shows Formula One 'still a sport' - Wurz

Alex Wurz believes that Sebastian Vettel will win his fourth-consecutive title this year.

Aug.25 (GMM) Former Formula One driver Alex Wurz has admitted he expects Sebastian Vettel to stroll now to his fourth drivers' title.

{{1550211|left|s4} Many others think Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton, the dominant winner of the last Grand Prix in Hungary and back on pole in Belgium, could mount a real challenge to Red Bull rival Vettel's reign in the second half of the season.

But when asked by Speed Week what he is expecting from the last nine races of 2013, Austrian Wurz admitted: "An early world title for Vettel."

Asked if yet another championship for Red Bull and Vettel is really what F1 needs, Wurz added: "It depends on your perspective.

"If you take a step back, I think it's good because it shows that despite everything, Formula One is still a sport, where the best one wins, even if it's early.

"For me it's good because it means Formula One is a pure sport that is not influenced artificially," said 39-year-old Wurz, who last raced for Williams in 2007.
