Most Germans think Sebastian Vettel will break his countryman Michael Schumacher's record of seven world titles.

At 24, Vettel is already F1's youngest ever double world champion, and he is signed up with the dominant Red Bull team for at least the next three seasons.

SID news agency commissioned the German market research company Promit to carry out a survey as to whether respondents think Vettel will one day be a record eight-time title winner.

59.5 per cent answered yes, with 24.6pc believing 42-year-old Schumacher's now seven-year record will forever remain unbroken.
