Sebastian Vettel wins the 2011 Italian GP

Sebastian Vettel could wrap up his second world championship in Singapore.

The German pulled out another 20 points in his runaway title lead on Sunday by dominantly winning the Italian grand prix at Monza.

There are just 150 points left to win in 2011, and Vettel's lead is now 112.

"Are we watching one of the true greats?" BBC commentator David Coulthard wondered.

Asked if he will be celebrating his second title in two weeks, Red Bull's Vettel answered with a grin: "I think we have put ourselves in a very good position."

F1's other two-time world champions are Jim Clark, Graham Hill, Emerson Fittipaldi, Mika Hakkinen and Fernando Alonso.
