  • Lewis Hamilton: 'Media need to show Sebastian Vettel more respect'

I thought that was how it was going to be, being that they were so strong at the previous two races.

It was meant to be the year Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel were finally going to go head to head.

Sebastian Vettel says it has been "inspirational" to see his Ferrari's teams spirit unaffected by its dramatic capitulation in the 2018 championship fight with Mercedes.

In a pattern that has become all too familiar since the middle part of the season, Hamilton and Mercedes got everything spot on and cruised to their sixth win in seven races.

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.

"As was the case a year ago, in September and October Ferrari seems to have gone off the rails", commented Ross Brawn, Formula One's managing director for motorsport and a former Mercedes team boss as well as ex-Ferrari technical director.

The results gave MercedesAMG with a 78-point lead in the Constructors' Championship and with MercedesAMGs' Lewis Hamilton a 67-point lead over Mr. Vettel in the drivers' championship.

He added: "From past experiences so much can happen so I will be at the factory this week and the focus will be on extracting as much as we can from this vehicle because we can always improve". Vettel was already on the radio even before he left the pits to tell his team they had messed up.

"When we were having the race like Monza - for me, I loved that race", he said. It's really weird - obviously, I have been racing a long, long time, but the happiness I have inside is as high as always. Vettel doesn't even have the fastest vehicle anymore.

Ferrari's engine advantage mid-season has seemingly disappeared as performances have dipped at recent events.

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. But Hamilton, who will be crowned champion again if he is victorious and Vettel fails to finish second in Austin, Texas, a week on Sunday, insists the German is owed greater credit.

"The championship is a marathon and not a sprint", the Briton said.
