Maximum attack for Vettel in Brazil


Sebastian Vettel will be on "maximum attack" at the Brazilian Grand Prix this weekend as he looks to finish second in the Formula One drivers' championship.

The Ferrari driver trails Mercedes' Nico Rosberg by 21 points with two races remaining, so could do with a positive result at Interlagos if he is to claim the runners-up spot behind champion Lewis Hamilton.

Vettel has only finished ahead of Rosberg on five occasions over the previous 17 races, but he remains confident he has the quality to eclipse his German compatriot on Sunday.

"I still want to get the second place in the championship rather than third," said the four-time champion. 

"We have two races to go and the target is to do well, maximum attack. 

"I would like to win both races but we know it's difficult because we know we are not the favourites and the only way to do that is to beat the Mercedes. 

"The Mexican result [when Vettel crashed late on] didn't help for sure, but the chance is there, so we have to keep pushing."
