With one race to go, Bernie Ecclestone is putting his money on Sebastian Vettel to win the championship this year.

This weekend's season-ending Brazilian Grand Prix will play host to the title-decider with Vettel setting the scene by leading chief rival Fernando Alonso by 13 points.

When the 82-year-old was asked by SID, who he would bet on to claim his third title, he replied: "I'd say Sebastian".

"Perhaps Sebastian on the basis of his results,” the Englishman elaborated when prompted about who deserved the crown more between the two drivers, referring to the five wins the Red Bull driver had registered.

"But Fernando hasn't had the best car for the majority of the time, that's why he deserves it too," he added.
