Wolff not counting Hamilton's title chickens yet

  • Vettel and Verstappen clash

Vettel is now 67 points behind Lewis Hamilton in the drivers' championship, and needs a set of freak circumstances if he is going to overhaul his Mercedes rival.

After Ferrari's error in qualifying which saw Vettel start the race in eighth, he made up to fourth on the first lap before his race-defining attempt to pass Verstappen dropped him down the field.

Four-time world champion Vettel has made small but costly errors at races in Azerbaijan, France, Austria, Germany, Italy and Japan, and Ferrari have made a series of operational errors that have also hit the team's hopes.

Hamilton could put Vettel out of his misery if he wins the next race at Austin in two weeks and Vettel finishes lower than second - or if he outscores the German by eight points.

I feel the media need to show a little more respect for Sebastian, Hamilton wrote on social media. "You simply can not imagine how hard it is to do what we do at our level, for any athlete at..."

"You can really enjoy dining with all that meat and barbecue restaurants", said Verstappen, referring to the local cuisine.

"I had similar encounters with others and we managed to make it through the corner". I thought that was how it was going to be, being that they were so strong at the previous two races.


Toto Wolff has stressed that "freak incidents" can still derail Mercedes' and Lewis Hamilton's quest for the 2018 title, in spite of its substantial buffer in both championships.

"I'm not sure it was a mistake with him", Wolff said. We had circumstances during the race that they impede us to achieve the podium.

"The rear of the vehicle was moving around a lot, particularly with the left-handers and obviously I had been hit on the right".

Vettel has accepted the unlikelihood of a shock twist for the championship title and has suggested there is still some value in the upcoming races for himself the Ferrari team.

"Austin is usually a good track for us, so I can't wait to unleash this beast there", said the British driver.

"Having experienced many crises myself during my time with Ferrari, what I know is that this is the time to come together, stay united and look ahead, without resorting to recrimination and playing the blame game".

"It's obvious from even a brief analysis of the way the auto behaves that Ferrari has a very strong technical package, thanks to the efforts of the past few years which has seen the team close a technical gap to Mercedes", Brawn said in a post-Japanese GP release.
