What do you guys think - can Vettel claw back the gap? Or will Hamilton extend it? Just six races to go...
LeeTeeArr (24 days ago)
Yes, but that was Vettel's luck in 2012.

+Swapnil Nayak Uhh, you clearly have issues. Friggin noob cunt? Don't you have a grade 5 class you'd better get going to? Geek.
Swapnil Nayak (26 days ago)
+Mark Robinson Uhh you clearly don't know how F1 works do you? Well tell me when did Vettel throw a temper tantrum? The multi 21 incident was payback for what Mark did to him in Brazil 2012! The Baku incident, ya keep barking it again and again! The Massa incidents well I don't remember Vettel that kind of crap to another driver! Lie-gate incident!.. Rolls eyes! Friggin noob cunt!

PLEASE guys, tell me the song’s name!!!!

+Swapnil Nayak As opposed to a crybaby who throws a temper tantrum when his teammate outqualifies him. Or the same crybaby who pulls up next to his rival and rams him behind the safety car because he claims he got brake checked, despite the telemetry data showing otherwise. Or the same crybaby who defies a pre-race agreement with his teammate and overtakes him when both were instructed to slow down to save their tires. But yep, bring up Hamilton and Massa's race incidents. That's clearly the same as Vettel's misdemeanours. Roll eyes.

Great change in the F1 management . . . . sharing the footage in stead of hoarding it in the attic like you used to. MUCH BETTER

This isn’t even close to the real racing that Senna, Schumacher, Hakkinen, etc. It doesn’t even resemble what those guys did. This is all car and the fastest one always wins. These drivers have about 1/10th of the skills of the real champions. Sad to see these wins count the same as the ones when Schumacher would win with the third or fourth fastest car.

I think it's at the stage now that Lewis may as well be given the title straight after the Melbourne race, he just keeps winning all the time. even when you think it's not going to be his race he still wins. Vettel would appear to be our only hope of a title fight and sadly 2017 is repeating itself in 2018. Verstappen is a third option but only at "Red Bull" circuits, Kimi and Valtteri are just making up the numbers and Ricciardo has just completely fallen away, especially since announcing he's leaving for Renault next year. I doubt enough can happen between now and the rest of the season for Vettel to catch up. Hamilton would have to stuff up on a catastrophic level for him to lose it from here. Either that or some serious race tampering from Kimi on Lewis just for Vettel to close the gap.

Lewis the best

Jenny Gavin-Wear (26 days ago)
Lewis in a slower car than Vettel still wins. Vettel under pressure makes more and more mistakes and becomes overly agressive. No doubt whatsoever that Lewis is the best driver.

Ferrari & vettel trying to beat Mercedes, instead they should concentrate on race condition. Nico deafeated Hamilton, #takeItEasy #ferrari.
Rosenberg David (27 days ago)
+Shoib Mohammed yeah but nico was never 40 points behind Lewis and he doesn't make the dumb mistakes that Vettel mskes
Shoib Mohammed (27 days ago)
+Kashmir there is history where drivers covered their point difference to victory. Giving decision early doesn't make true.
Shoib Mohammed (27 days ago)
+Rosenberg David I mean, Ferrari still have hopes to win WDC. They don't have to come under pressure.
Kashmir (27 days ago)
+Rosenberg David I know right, I don't understand what his point is. it's just yet another example of a single ferrari fan being an idiot, and brining the whole ferrari name down, smh

This season will be remembered for one of the greats, been amazing so far, Ferrari with the better car most of the season but Lewis is at his best so its been pretty even, not one running away with it. Those wins lewis has pulled out to stay in the race this season have been something else.
Hamid Amini (28 days ago)
Is it just me or has Lewis been getting the best luck these past 2 years. With Vettel on the opposite end.
Rosenberg David (27 days ago)
So Vettel continues to make mistakes Translate to you as Lewis Hamilton is lucky it's amazing to me how the human mind works

BDávid19 (28 days ago)
Very Simple really. Vettel is not on super CLASS level, like Lewis, or Fernando. Fernando with that Ferrari would be leading with almost 40 points clear and he is not a gifting it away character with "bad driving'"... In 2012 Fernando had an almost 1 second slower car and he still come home almost every race on the podium. That is a massive difference.

Poor strategy and bad day for Ferrari But so glad that Kimi is so consistent this season and really sad to hear that hes leaving Ferrari next season
Adam Advocaat (28 days ago)
After Singapore, the championship is Lewis' to lose.
yodaspeak77 (28 days ago)
Anyone who actually thinks that Vettel still has a chance is a complete retard and a blind fan. If it's not Ferrari fucking up the strategy, it's Vettel gifting points to Lewis. Everyone who's all like “grazie ragazzi, we'll still fight" just shut up. This championship was over in Germany. It's a repeat of 2017. And this is coming from a Vettel and Ferrari fan.
RWhitesLemonade Drinker (28 days ago)
You all need to watch Lewis in his junior formula, he drove like a demon, he was passing others with either same equipment or alittle inferior, he won from first, middle and near last position... Raw talent that is... something special we are seeing here throughout his career.
Tramaine318 (28 days ago)
All of these comments gifting Lewis the championship is rubbish!!! It’s never over until it’s mathematical impossible to win the championship! Lewis Hamilton quote.

Lewis is just lucky , both Vettel and him are great drivers , Vettel did so many mistakes its a shame , he is just giving Lewis the championship ...

zinTaxZA (29 days ago)
It is so shit to finally see a good WDC battle in F1 and now Vettel basically gave Hamilton a free title and crushed the dreams of a promising season ending. I just hope the future regulations can make us see 3 teams compete for the constructors and at least 4 drivers compete for the title all season long because I really miss that.
Nexu Jin (29 days ago)
Regardless who is going to win this championship, there will be heartbreak for either Mercedes or Ferrari camp this season. Hamilton made less mistakes on the track this season than Sebastian. He would be the deserving champion. But if Seb wins would be nice to interrupt Mercedes's run since the hybrid-era. I think Seb can bounce back, but question is can Ferrari provide him a reliable car and team to do it. I don't think so.

Do something........ and change the way it goes the competition. It is obvious who will win the championship. Sorry for saying that seems like a fake competition and it is boring
giorgos8228 (27 days ago)
Sorry If I said something offendind forthe fans of F1....... But as I said before I dont like the situation for example 2010 - 2011 - 2012 - 2013 VETTEL CHAMPION and then 2014 - 2015 - 2017 HAMILTON CHAMPION....... Let say for footbal I have never seen REAL MADRID to be EUROPEAN CHAMPION for 2010 - 2011 - 2012 - 2013.
Kashmir (27 days ago)
?????????????????????????????? Do you watch F1? It took lewis 4 races to win his first race of this season, 3 races into the season, with ferrari almost winning all 3 (just missing China) you wouldn't have said that "it seems like a fake competition" smh, I hate all these guys who talks about "yeah I knew that was gonna happen" AFTER it happens, smhhhhhhhh
Merc LH (29 days ago)
Lewis Hamilton is a God among men. Slower car and still leading the championship, the modern Senna.
saddist1Gtown (29 days ago)
Maybe we should get more of the Sky commentary on these videos to put some perspective on just how biased they are during the live race. They only tone it down once it is a slam dunk Hamilton victory. Exciting but a more neutral commentary could enhance the viewing pleasure.
saddist1Gtown (27 days ago)
Kashmir  I am not here to answer to your demands. Maybe you should pay more attention to what you hear before disputing someone's point? I suggest you go back to the race archive and listen to the FULL Sky commentary to get my point. I will give you some references try listening to Crofty, Hill. Lazenby and di Resta and tell me they aren't biased towards Vettel. Only Anthony Davidson tries to be neutral and gives really good analyses.
Kashmir (27 days ago)
Disagree. From what I hear, the commentary is always very neutral. If you can tell me about any exciting things other drivers have done (with relevance to the championship) I would LOVE to hear it

So basically German grand prix where he fucked it. Could have been that first elusive title for Seb this season. Don't think Ham is letting go of this one unless Vettel controls every single race from now and hopes Kimi will do his job as well.

D1stinct (29 days ago)
As long as you can get past his shitty attitude moments throughout the season, Hamilton for sure deserves this WDC. His racing mentality has made him an absolute monster these last couple races. Despite being a Ferrari and Alonso fan, mad respect to Mercedes and Hamilton!

Dr Khalid Almomatten (29 days ago)
Ferarri As a team, Vettel, Raiknoon, and the cars had never tuned up together simultaneously. That what is needed to beat a phenomenal driver like Lewis. Could it happen in the remaining races? It is difficult but not impossible. Constructor championship is very likely but the signing with Charles will have negative impact on Raikkonen
Phil Driver (29 days ago)
vettel is a joke . he is a bottler . lewis is probably one of the best drivers ever . got the 2nd best car and walking away with the title .

Rob Finney (29 days ago)
I have no real driver that I root for. Can't stand Ferrari or Vettel though. But, the season is not over. Hamilton is prone to make mistakes as well. Let's not forget 2016 and his horrible starts that cost him the title that season. These next 6 races are going to be make or break for both of them. Should be entertaining.
Tyler Durden (29 days ago)

sendheron1 (29 days ago)
Vettel deserves all he gets he does not deserve to drive that car he can't use the excuse the cars not good enough anymore when it is,the fact is he's not good enough I don't like Hamilton but hes better than Vettel any day, he lost the title in Germany,Ferrari wake up & get rid of him.

Next year Mercedes will win the championship too. Why? Because Bottas will let Lewis pass and Leclerc not... Teamorders should be forbidden

Roman Reinhardt (29 days ago)
Hamilton is such a turd. He obviously didnt leave Vettel enough space and he obviously had more space to the right. Watch 1:43 and you'll see that Hamilton obviously turned in too much. Just a dumbass. And he wasn't ahead until the middle of the chicane. Very bad and arogant judgement.
Robbie NL (29 days ago)
Mercedes have the fastest car, Vettel did great but Hamilton is now on his level. I think Mercedes wil win again.

One thing I've learned about Vettel is, it's never his fault, everyone else makes the mistakes, he's perfect... Well, according to him...
