Although the German had already clinched his fourth consecutive world title at the Indian GP last weekend, he pledged there would be no let up and he proved that beyond any doubt.
Starting from second on the grid, Vettel overtook his Red Bull teammate Mark Webber on the first turn and was untroubled after that.
He beat second-placed Webber by 30.8 seconds and Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg by 33.6 seconds
Vettel now has 37 career race wins and, with two races left, can still match Michael Schumacher's single-season record of 13 wins in 2004. Schumacher also won 11 races in 2002.
