Briatore: 'Vettel mistakes prove he is his biggest enemy'

F1: Ferrari (NYSE:RACE) Team Boss says, Lewis Hamilton defends Sebastian Vettel and urges 'respect' from media
Shannon Reynolds | 12 October, 2018, 20:19

Hamilton opened a 67-point lead over Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel with four races left after storming to victory in Japan at the weekend, but Wolff clearly wants to wrap his star driver in cotton wool for the remainder of the season.

The German collided with Max Verstappen in Suzuka on Sunday and was blamed for taking unnecessary risks.

In Japan, Ferrari's tyre choice error and Vettel's own mistake in qualifying set the tone for a miserable race at Suzuka.

This time around, since Vettel won the British Grand Prix to claim an eight-point lead, Hamilton has come out on top in six of the last seven races - including the most recent four.

So, should Hamilton win and Vettel finishes in third or lower, he will be crowned champion.

I feel the media need to show a little more respect for Sebastian, Hamilton wrote on social media.

"You simply can not imagine how hard it is to do what we do at our level".

"You can really enjoy dining with all that meat and barbecue restaurants", said Verstappen, referring to the local cuisine.

"Of course, I would love to have a race right to the end".

Downside risks to economy
Jakarta expects the economy to grow by 5.2 per cent this year and 5.3 per cent next year, given external pressures. It sees the unemployment rate dropping to 3.9 percent in 2018 and to 3.5 percent in 2019.

"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".

"I know from the probable standpoint it doesn't look likely, but this is motor racing, it's a sport, anything could happen".

The death of Sergio Marchionne has been "a major impact" on Ferrari and its 2018 Formula 1 world title charge according to Ross Brawn following the potentially-decisive results at the Japanese Grand Prix.

"Every time when we become a little too optimistic I remind myself of the championship Lewis lost by one point in 2007".

"I believe the stress you have as a driver is enormous and if you're in the position to handle the stress and do the job and not go out [retire from races], you're winning".

"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.

"We need to look after ourselves and do our bit for the next couple of races, and then we see".

"But I have to say that concerning today, the team and the drivers, they react very well".

Since Hockenheim, Hamilton has taken 168 points from a maximum 175 available while Vettel, who won his four world championships with Red Bull, has managed only 93.
