Vettel close to being one of the all-time greats

9:36 am on 4 October 2013

The Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel can go a long way to securing his 4th World Formula One title with victory in this weekend's Korean Grand Prix.

The German has a 60 point lead over his closest rival Ferrari's Fernando Alonso, with just 150 points left this season.

meanwhile Korean F1 organisers are monitoring Tropical Storm Fitow that is passing through parts of Asia.

While it may not hit South Korea, the storm could still cause heavy rain and strong winds to affect the region.

The first Korean Grand Prix, in 2010, was disrupted by a heavy storm, which caused the race to be suspended for an hour.
