Vettel wants to end season on a high with victory in the Brazilian GP

Sebastian Vettel, Red BullSebastian Vettel is determined to end his title-winning campaign with even more success in Brazil this weekend.

Although the Red Bull Racing driver has achieved all he needed to this season, after securing the title in Japan, he says there is no way he wants to finish the year with anything less than a victory.

"All in all, we cannot complain about the races or the results we have had this year," he explained. "We seem to like this circuit. Last year we had a very good run here, and two years ago Mark [Webber] won this race, so we seem to like this circuit.

"It might be a bit chaotic at times but we want to finish the season on a high as we've seen for the last two years. The weather forecast looks a bit up and down. But surely we want to finish as high as we can."

Although Vettel could be forgiven for never wanting the season to end, he admits that he is looking forward to some time off now before work starts on 2012.

"It has been a long season," he said. "We started in mid-January, then in February was the first test and now it is December.

"It is tough for the whole team. We need a break to get ready for next year as well. When you find a rhythm and we are on a good run, quite a good run, we don't want it to end.

"But we can't really complain, and we couldn't really ask for more. We had the opportunity to enjoy the last couple of races. We had the opportunity simply to enjoy. There was less pressure. Although we have kept the pressure on ourselves, we always wanted to win races. The same thing, we try again here."
