Sebastian Vettel wants to ensure that his domination is not just limited to Formula 1 as the Red Bull driver is intent on returning as the leader of the charts on Top Gear as well.

In the British motoring show aired three weeks ago, Lewis Hamilton claimed the fastest time in the ‘Star in a Reasonably Priced Car’ segment reserved for F1 drivers.

Hamilton is the only F1 driver to make two appearances on the show in which he clocked a time that was 1.1 seconds clear from immediate rival Vettel on the ‘Power Lap’ board.

"He was cheating!" joked the triple world champion referring to the Mercedes driver’s efforts in the Suzuki Liana which broke the German's record.

"Of course I would like another go. I now have another reason to go on the show,” Vettel was quoted saying by the Daily Mail.

“When I was there, I wanted to keep on going but now I will have to wait until I get invited to go back on the show,” he said referring to the episode aired in July 2011. “It’s a good car – you should try it!”

"His time was pretty impressive. It was a big difference to everyone else. I need to go there and find a bit of a trick,” he added.
