BANGKOK, Thailand - Germany, represented by F1 World champions Sebastian Vettel and Michael Schumacher, won the Race of Champions team crown for the sixth consecutive year here on Saturday.

The event, which pits winners from various motorsport series competing in identical cars and held at the Thai capital's Rajamangala stadium for the first time, saw Germany comfortably beat the French pairing of F1 driver Romain Grosjean and rally driver Sebastien Ogier by two heats to nil in the final.

'WE'LL BE BACK'

"Even Michael hasn't managed six titles in a row so this is something special," said Vettel, who will be aiming for the individual title on Sunday (Dec 16).

Schumacher, winner of a record seven F1 championships including five in a row for Ferrari, said he and Vettel would defending the title again in 2013.

"For sure we're going to be here, that's a must," said the 43-year-old who retired from F1 for the second time in November 2012.

"Actually, my lucky number is seven, so we are going to push hard."
