Vettel still believes he can beat Hamilton

Vettel still believes he can beat Hamilton”

"It is great to have seen some of the weaknesses come through this year and I'm grateful for this recent one", he said.

"It's pointless to look at one race and one there, it's over the whole season".

"I am looking race by race but I strongly believe that we can still do it".

Vettel crashed out at the first lap at the last race in Singapore after colliding with team-mate Kimi Raikkonen and Red Bull's Max Verstappen and fell 28 points behind Hamilton in their world championship dogfight after the Mercedes driver's subsequent victory.

"I think it would have been more hard if I would have lost the auto somewhere in the race, then it is obviously different", he said.

Singapore offered some respite, since it was a night race, but this one is raced in afternoon heat with 80 percent humidity.

"It's like being in a sauna".

Drivers can expect to shed 5 percent of their body weight in fluid loss. "The track is a challenging one - it has both fast and slow corners, so it will be crucial for us to get the tyres working properly". Many are sad that the Sepang International circuit is hosting its final race. "It's the most challenging for the vehicle and the team, so they are taking away one of the toughest, if not the toughest, grand prix of the season, which will be hard to replace".

When asked if Ferrari now had to rely on Hamilton encountering auto trouble to have a chance of winning the drivers' title, he replied: "I don't think we do because we have a lot of races left, I think we have a strong vehicle".

Several of the drivers also expressed hope that F1 would soon return to the venue, with Sebastian Vettel saying, "I'm not obviously involved in why we're not racing here any more but, who knows, maybe we're back after a year break or two".

No pressure then Red Bull!

"You can look at Singapore again and again and it doesn't matter".

"It's race week", Ricciardo posted on Instagram.

On a track that suits Red Bull well, a similar grid position on Sunday would be ideal for Vettel - providing he can avoid crashing again.

Although Vettel deserves huge credit for turning the Prancing Horse into a contender again, he owes them a big performance here, and Hamilton is bracing himself for a strong response. It's also not the first time I've been in a situation like this and probably it will not be the last time.
