Vettel deserves more respect, says Hamilton

Vettel deserves more respect, says Hamilton

The Austin Circuit of Americas is one of Hamilton's favourite tracks, having tasted success on five of the last six Grand Prix held there.

Despite the mistakes and a heavy points loss in both championships, Vettel said that seeing the team work was "inspirational" and claims the team doesn't have much to lose now with four races to go.

They no longer have the fastest vehicle, with Mercedes locking out the front row and finishing in one-two formation in the last two races.

More frustration followed on Turn Three when Raikkonen locked up and crashed into Hamilton, leaving the reigning World champion to rejoin the contest in 18th position.

"We seem to have the stamina this year".

Hamilton has won the last four Grands Prix - leading Valtteri Bottas for a 1-2 in both Russian Federation and Japan - to open a 67-point advantage over Sebastian Vettel in the Drivers' battle.

Vettel was involved in contact with Max Verstappen during the Japanese Grand Prix that eventually limited him to sixth place. He recovered well but could only claw his way back to eighth.

"Having experienced many crises myself during my time with Ferrari, what I know is that this is the time to come together, stay united and look ahead, without resorting to recrimination and playing the blame game".

"Of course, I would love to have a race right to the end. I've been grateful to have also delivered when the team have delivered". Those are the races that I love.

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.

"This is a tough fight and nobody is prepared to give an inch, not us, not our competitors", he told the Guardian before the weekend's race.

"We must be relentless and resilient". It's not about the race wins, it's about the points.

"So the thought of the possibility of losing is omnipresent". It is always hard to make the right call, but that is another real big difference that we as a team have made this year.

For, just as last season, rival Ferrari has faded horribly.

"The freak incidents happen everywhere", said Wolff.

"Even though they are still performing great, one of them can't always perform the same".

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

"Everyone's putting in 100 percent, and everyone's delivered time and time again. I'm grateful the auto was in one piece and I'm grateful to get through".
