vettel has the ability surpass schumacher if he continues to dominate at this rate. either way this good because it just reinforces germany's ability to turn out excellent F1 drivers just as MotoGP ability to turn out excellent motorcycle racers..

I love Sebastian, but I'm not about to say that he has this title wrapped up. We had these same idiots like Lauda proclaiming that Fernando had it "all wrapped up" this time last year with a similar lead like Vettel is now enjoying.
If you've been paying attention to F1 for a long time, then you'll recall how easy it is for a retirement for the point leader an a win for the #2 in the points at the same race to COMPLETELY change the outlook. It happens every year. Sometimes several times in a season. Hell, Lulu can still win it all with good luck mixed with bad luck for Seb.
That being said, VOLLGAS SEBASTIAN!!!!!
Get those 7 titles like your mentor Michael!

Norse,
"Vettel can only win with teammates that offer no challenge?"
WTF? Where have you been? Have you not seen Mark Webber fighting Vettel tooth-and-nail from day one? Way before the "Multi-21 affair" Webber was trying to show Seb who was boss. At the last race in 2012 when Seb was damaged by Senna, and was under threat to lose the title to Alonso, Webber took as many points as possible from Seb.
But in the end his dirty game didn't work out for him and Sebastian fought into the points and staved off Alonso.
Now, WTF were you saying?

When someone enjoys a period of dominance it is common for people to predict that they will smash all the records. For example, Tiger Woods was supposed to smash all Jack Nicholas's records.

The truth is that there are a lot of factors that can turn things on their head. Vettel looks like he is in the box seat to snare another title but anything can, and often will, happen to stop what seems inevitable.
