Schumacher backs Vettel to ruin Button title dream

SEVEN-TIME world champion Michael Schumacher is backing Sebastian Vettel to pull off a sensational comeback and pip Jenson Button to the Formula One title.<br /><br />With two races of the season to go, Vettel lies third in the standings with Rubens Barrichello two points ahead in second and Button a further 14 points in front.<br /><br />But Schumacher believes his fellow German has what it takes to overhaul the Brawn GP duo and earn a maiden driver success for his Red Bull team. <br /><br />&ldquo;Mathematically everything is still possible, and I will keep my fingers crossed for him,&rdquo; Schumacher said.<br /><br />&ldquo;He still has the chance to win the title and this fact alone is already a big success for him. I am sure he will do everything possible to produce a good performance in the next two races.&rdquo;<br /><br />Meanwhile, British Racing Drivers&rsquo; Club president Damon Hill is keen for a quick decision to be made on where the British Grand Prix will be held next year.<br /><br />Doubts continue to be raised over Donington&rsquo;s capacity to stage the 2010 race, prompting F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone to accuse circuit chief Simon Gillett of being in breach of contract.<br /><br />Silverstone are ready to step in if required but former world champion Hill just wants a simple resolution. &ldquo;I&rsquo;d like to see an end to the continuing saga,&rdquo; he said.<br />
