Sebastian Vettel is aiming to clinch his fourth straight Formula One championship at this weekend's Japanese Grand Prix, a race the Red Bull driver lists among his favorites.

If Vettel wins at Suzuka, and his nearest rival Fernando Alonso finishes worse than eighth, the German driver will join his compatriot Michael Schumacher and Argentine Juan-Manuel Fangio as the only men to win four consecutive titles.

If he wins Sunday in Japan, where he has won three of the last four GPs, the 26-year-old Vettel will become the youngest to win four drivers' championships in succession.

He has won the last four GPs, and his latest victory at the Korean Grand Prix on Sunday stretched his lead over Alonso to 77 points with five races left.
