Vettel is unstoppable, or is he?

With four races of the 2011 Formula One season gone, there is a clear trend emerging. Red Bull Racing's Sebastian Vettel has won three of the four races so far, and all signs indicate that there will be more to come for the defending World Champion.

For followers of the sport since the turn of the millennium, the sight of a German running away with the title seems all too familiar

This season promised to deliver even more thrills and spills from 2010, which in itself was a relatively exciting season. The introduction of the new adjustable rear wings, or Drag Reduction System as the FIA terms it, as well as the new, fast-wearing Pirelli tyres have undoubtedly contributed to far more overtaking action than we've seen in recent times. The action-packed races we've seen so far bear testament to that theory.

Despite that however, World Champion Vettel somehow seems to rise above it all, and dominate this year's proceedings. With the exception of the Chinese Grand Prix in Shanghai, where he lost to McLaren's Lewis Hamilton on a flawed tyre strategy, the young German have managed to escape all the chaos and drama, and stamped his mark firmly on the championship.

Personally, I think it would be a shame if, despite all the new additions and technologies to the sport, Vettel continues to win races with such efficiency. But for all we know, we could be seeing yet another Formula One legend in the making.

Let's hope someone gives him a good fight on the way there though.
