Formula 1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone has predicted that Sebastian Vettel will win next year’s world championship.

In an interview with German magazine Bild (they’re doing well for F1 news recently aren’t they?), he said that: “There are several – [Lewis] Hamilton, [Fernando] Alonso… But I will say this now: Vettel will be the next world champion.”

Also, he said that he was relishing the prospect of one generation against the next, as 41-year-old Schumacher faes the likes of 22-year-old Vettel. “Without a doubt, the young ones will want to beat him,” said Ecclestone. “He will make sure of that. That’s the appeal of all of this.”

Furthermore, he agrees with a lot of people -including me- when he predicts that F1 2010 will be an epic season. Although he’s wrong when it comes to Vettel, it’s going to be Alonso in my opinion!
