Sebastian Vettel is back in America and he wants to win the race Lewis Hamilton snatched away from him at the end last year.

Vettel led most of the 2012 U.S. Grand Prix until Hamilton overtook him with a bold passing move with 14 laps to go, sending the Englishman to the top of the podium.

It was one of the last times anyone has gotten the best of Vettel, who has dominated the 2013 season with 11 victories and already won his fourth consecutive world championship. If Vettel wins Sunday at the Circuit of the Americas, he'll set a single season record with his eighth consecutive victory.

A win would also keep the German on target to match countryman Michael Schumacher's record 13 in a season.
