Alain Prost has congratulated Sebastian Vettel on matching his tally of four world championships.

Vettel's victory at the Indian Grand Prix was enough for him to secure his fourth consecutive title for Red Bull with three races remaining. That success puts Vettel alongside Prost, Juan Manuel Fangio and Michael Schumacher as a quadruple world champion and Prost was quick to congratulate the achievement.

"I'm delighted to see Sebastian win the title today," Prost said. "He is a great driver and he has had some outstanding wins this year, some of the best of his career so far. Singapore was one of those wins: he was fighting all the way but he made it look easy, which is always a mark of a worthy winner.

"You can see he is methodical in his approach, builds a strong team around him that is 100% motivated for success and is entirely focused on the end result.

"He is a great champion and I don't think this title will be his last. He has a good team around him, stability with the technical team and with Renault, and of course he is still young enough to challenge for more. I'm pleased to see him equal my four titles. I wish him all the best to go on and win others and become a great Renault champion."
