    Default Brazilian GP:Third championship title renders Vettel speechless

    Lewis Hamilton was fastest in the first practice for the season-ending Brazilian Grand Prix on Friday, while Formula One leader Sebastian Vettel was second.

    Fernando Alonso, the only driver fighting Vettel for the title, was fifth.

    Hamilton had a lap of 1 minute, 14.131 seconds with McLaren at Interlagos, edging Vettel's Red Bull. Vettel teammate Mark Webber was third in 1:14.198 and Jenson Button of McLaren was fourth in 1:14.217.

    Alonso, who tested different wings, clocked 1:14.392.

    Vettel has a 13-point lead over Alonso and needs to finish fourth or better to become F1's youngest three-time champion at age 25. He can also be the first to win three in a row since Michael Schumacher in 2004. Schumacher plans to retire after the race.

    Default Third championship title renders Vettel speechless




    It all came good for Sebastian Vettel just when it all seemed to be going wrong on Sunday in a Brazilian Grand Prix that turned the Red Bull driver into Formula One's youngest triple world champion.In the immediate aftermath of his title triumph, the 25-year-old German alluded to 'dirty tricks' against him and his team earlier in the season but he had far more immediate concerns at Interlagos. "I think everything that could go wrong, went wrong," he said of a race that saw him start in fourth place, go to the back of the field after a fourth-corner collision that left him facing the wrong direction, and finish sixth. As the champion turned around and fought back, Ferrari title rival Fernando Alonso moved into a position that would have handed him a third title if the race had ended that way.The floor of the Red Bull was damaged and Vettel was unable to communicate through the car-to-team radio, a problem that led to others on a wet and chaotic afternoon.



    "We did the pitstop probably at the wrong time -- I went on another set of drys and a lap later it started to rain -- I came in for inters and the inters weren't ready because we had no radio communication, they couldn't hear me," explained Vettel.
    "It was a very tough race but we were present all the time, we remained ourselves throughout the whole year even though people did some things that we would never consider to do," he added.
    "A lot of people tried to play dirty tricks but we did not get distracted by that and kept going our way and all the guys gave a big push right to the end."
    It was not immediately clear what he was referring to. Some saw it as a reference to destabilising rumours earlier in the year that Vettel had an agreement to move to Ferrari, others to Ferrari tactics favouring Alonso or questions about the legality of the Red Bull.
    "People tried everything, inside the lines and outside the lines, to beat us and the amount of questions we had to deal with, stuff we had to deal with throughout the season, didn't make our life easier," he said.




    Only two other champions have ever won three titles in a row -- the late Argentine Juan Manuel Fangio and seven-times champion Michael Schumacher, now 43 and a good friend of his younger compatriot.
    Schumacher did Vettel one last favour in the closing laps when he did not attempt to prevent the champion taking sixth place from him.
    "I said thanks for not defending too hard," said Vettel.
    "He said 'What's the point? You were much quicker, you were going to pass me anyway'."
    Vettel, who admitted to pre-race nerves, also became only the ninth triple champion and he was keenly aware of what he had achieved.
