London: Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel has said that he would not be afraid of taking on one of Formula One`s other leading names as his teammate but insists he has nothing to prove.

According to the BBC, Vettel, who has won the last five races in a row, needs only a fifth place in the Indian Grand Prix to be absolutely sure of the title.

Only Ferrari`s Fernando Alonso is mathematically able to beat him, but is 90 points behind with only 100 still available, the report said.

Red Bull has resisted opportunities in the last 18 months to sign Lewis Hamilton, Kimi Raikkonen and Fernando Alonso, the report added.

Vettel rejected a suggestion that he needs to take on Alonso, Hamilton or Raikkonen in another car to prove his greatness to any doubters, according to the report.
