GREATER NOIDA, India (AP) -- Few drivers in Sunday's Formula One Indian Grand Prix will be as motivated to beat defending champion Sebastian Vettel more than his departing teammate Mark Webber.

Webber leaves F1 after the 2013 season, calling an end to seven years at Red Bull, the last four of which have been defined by an intense and often strained relationship with Vettel.

Vettel has won the past two Indian GPs from pole position, leading every lap.

With the German poised to seal his fourth straight drivers title this weekend, Webber knows only too well how difficult it will be to stop him, saying he needs a "perfect weekend. Pole, perfect race, perfect everything to put him off the top step, so that has to be the plan."
