Vettel not thinking about last three titles

6:45 pm on 15 March 2013

The Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel says the best way to snare a fourth straight Formula One world title is to forget about the first three.

The record-setting German believes he needs to start with a blank sheet, beginning with Sunday's season-opening Australian Grand Prix.

While Vettel said the weight of expectations was lifted from his shoulders with his first championship in 2010, he needs to focus on beginning the season level with his rivals.
