Lewis Hamilton: Mercedes driver names the F1 champion who deserves more respect

Lewis Hamilton: Mercedes driver names the F1 champion who deserves more respect

In the 25-minute conference, spearheaded by F1's managing director Sean Bratches-part of the new triumvirate which replaced [former owner and CEO Bernie] Ecclestone-and new marketing director Ellie Norman, the word "digital" was said ten times, while the word "brand" hit 24 mentions. Ferrari was simply not competitive with Mercedes this weekend so the point loss can be attributed to factors beyond Vettel's control, expanding the gap to 18 points. Scuppered certain victories in Baku (penalised for deliberately swerving into Hamilton), Singapore (crashed out from pole) and Mexico (damaged his front wing after a first-lap collision with Hamilton), too. He showed he is worthy of being re-signed by Mercedes in 2018.

Though Vettel slid three points relative to Hamilton, in reality, the team order scenario, with the title up for grabs, would put him at a net loss of ten points, and five behind Hamilton once again.

Hamilton may have made the odd error here and there, but a combination of flawless reliability and supreme skill saw him round out the championship with relative ease.

Sebastian Vettel and Ferrari signed off the race as they have been all season - second best.

Renault's investment in the works Enstone team will demand better results from Hulkenberg and Carlos Sainz next year. It was a disappointing twist of fate for Ricciardo, who had an otherwise great season including eight podium finishes. The one-two finish was their fourth of the season. The somewhat uninspiring circuit offers little for drivers to enjoy and, with the aero-regulations making passing tricky, on-track moves are likely to be few and far between.

This follows on from the same threats that Ferrari have recently demonstrated when the Scuderia claimed that if the changes didn't match their interests, then they wouldn't hesitate to quit the sport.

"He has developed in a way that benefits both himself and the team".

"Because we do not see any vision".

Sergio Perez finished in P7 while Esteban Ocon took P8 in the Drivers' Championship.

But he could not get quite close enough to challenge for the lead in a drab and largely action-free finale.

Led the championship for 12 of the 20 races but crumbled under pressure. "I don't think the new one is as iconic but maybe it will grow on us". Obrigado Felipe, we will miss you!

Mum's the word Who is Lewis Hamilton's mum Carmen Larbalestier? Incidentally, Abu Dhabi was also the last race without the halo.

"F1 must remain the pinnacle of technology and the best competition, and if you dilute this message with standard specifications and false situations that penalise the best and help the weakest, I think that's not our DNA". With these alternate outcomes in mind, I concluded that if Vettel outscored Hamilton by at least 12 points over the last four races of the season, he could have been the champion-in place of Lewis.
