Hamilton defends Vettel after criticism of mistakes

The German's hard weekend in Japan after a collision with Max Verstappen paved way for Hamilton to extend his lead to 67 points, with a chance to clinch the title in Austin should he win and Vettel finish third or lower. Ever since his victory at the British Grand Prix, the German has made critical errors that has affected his results and helped Hamilton extend his lead in the championship.

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

"I don't want to even think about him [Hamilton] breaking a finger". Those are the races that I love.

Mercedes, meanwhile, now holds a 78-point buffer back to Ferrari as it bids to claim its fifth straight Constructors' crown.

Vettel's highest finish since his win in Belgium at the end of August has been third and he will need to win at least the next two, with Hamilton failing to score, for any miracle to look remotely possible.

Ross Brawn, who is Liberty Media's Formula 1 sporting boss but arguably more famous for his earlier role at Ferrari, praised the Italian team for catching up with Mercedes this year.

"We must be relentless and resilient".

Sebastian Vettel did not have the right approach to be world champion in 2018. So, I was fairly open minded when coming out of the hairpin.

As a leader you can talk on the pitch, but I have seen leaders who do not necessarily speak. This is my opinion and I would have said that to him.

"So the thought of the possibility of losing is omnipresent".

The talk following Hamilton's win at the Russian Grand Prix centred around the team's decision to ask Valtteri Bottas to sacrifice a first victory of the season for his team-mate.

"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.

Brawn, former Ferrari technical director, feels Ferrari's key problems can be narrowed down to the sudden passing of former President Marchionne who died in late July following a short illness.

"The freak incidents happen everywhere", said Wolff. I don't know why they don't make tracks like this anymore but every second of the run it was just great fun.

"It's the psychological battle, war, that we're in".

"It's collectively. Everyone has putting 100 per cent in and everyone has delivered time and time again. I'm grateful the vehicle was in one piece and I'm grateful to get through".
