I’ve no intention of leaving Ferrari: Vettel

  • F1: Ferrari (NYSE:RACE) Team Boss says,

Amidst recent criticism for his on-track errors, Lewis Hamilton jumped to defend Vettel's mistakes by calling for more respect from the media.

Vettel has dropped from leading the title race to trailing Hamilton by 67 points in just seven grands prix, with his rival winning six of those and now on a four-race victory streak.

"I feel the media need to show a little more respect for Sebastian", Hamilton wrote at the end of an Instagram story from a fashion show in Tokyo. "You simply can not imagine how hard it is to do what we do at our level".

Even Mission: Impossible star Tom Cruise would baulk at the task facing Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel after Sunday's Japanese Grand Prix.

"You simply can not imagine how hard it is to do what we do at our level, for any athlete at the top of their game that is", said Hamilton.

"I was with the engineers on Sunday night, and I said to them I hope you know you are performing at your best because as a unit we are, and you should sit back and take note".

Mercedes has enjoyed a qualifying advantage over Ferrari at the last three grands prix, although Vettel has been more competitive in race trim. "I think there's still some important things that we can understand and learn about the vehicle".

Vettel's pursuit of a fifth world title appeared to be going to plan after the German dominated the Belgian Grand Prix six weeks ago.

Ferrari team principal Maurizio Arrivabene took umbrage with a Sky Sports interviewer's question on why Vettel risked the fateful pass when Verstappen already had been handed a five-second penalty for a prior incident with Kimi Raikkonen.

Hamilton has won the last four Grands Prix - leading Valtteri Bottas for a 1-2 in both Russian Federation and Japan - to open a 67-point advantage over Sebastian Vettel in the Drivers' battle. I think Sebastian made a lot of mistakes this year.

"Every single race, I want battles like Monza and like the other ones that have been like that", he added.

And following Mercedes' much-maligned ruthlessness in Russian Federation, ordering Valtteri Bottas to move aside for Hamilton, and Sunday's victory in Japan, the 33-year-old can wrap up victory at the US Grand Prix in two weeks' time.

"Obviously it's not been an easy couple of weeks but the spirit in the team, considering how tough the last weeks have been is unbroken". I thought that was how it was going to be, being that they were so strong at the previous two races.

Despite Hamilton and Mercedes boasting a comfortable lead in both heading to the US, Mercedes boss Toto Wolff is taking nothing for granted.

"It's obvious from even a brief analysis of the way the vehicle 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.
