Noida/Singapore/Japan, Oct 22 (ANI): India's Formula One organizers feel the world championship crowning of Sebastian Vettel at the Buddh International circuit would be a huge draw for fans and great for the circuit that goes for a one year sabbatical before an expected return in 2015. India's showpiece motor race event will be held on 27th of this month with race leader Vettel's fourth successive Formula One title a mere formality. The 26-year-old German, who is already 90 points clear of Ferrari's Fernando Alonso, the only man still mathematically in contention, should become the sport's youngest quadruple champion, with four races remaining. Vettel, who won the Indian GP in 2011 and 2012, needs only to finish fifth at the Buddh Circuit to be sure of the title and will not need to score another point if Alonso fails to finish first or second.
