Sebastian Vettel speaks about Championship Battle with Hamilton

Sebastian Vettel speaks about Championship Battle with Hamilton

After coming in third at Monza, Vettel announced he was not happy with the result, but admitted he was “not too stressed” about what’s to come. Now, with the next GP just days away, the four-time champion explained that he likes the ongoing battle with Hamilton, saying he wouldn’t want it any other way.

Having seen Mercedes claim back-to-back victories in Belgium and Italy, the championship momentum is expected to swing back to Ferrari at the high-downforce Marina Bay street circuit. Ferrari’s best results this year have come at Monaco and Budapest, similar circuits to Singapore, and looks set to be its strongest circuit of the seven remaining on the calendar.

The German added after the last race that it was clear Mercedes had the pace going in their favor, but he hopes to overturn that in the next handful of contests.

In a report from ESPN, Vettel explained his feelings after losing the lead to Hamilton at the Italian Grand Prix, his team’s home race. “They’re all tracks that I like, to be honest, so I’m very much looking forward to them,” he said.

“I think we are here to race, so if it’s hard it’s good,” he continued. “Easy is boring. I think that’s what we all want and I’m definitely looking forward to it.”

Hamilton’s two recent wins propelled moved him three points clear of Vettel in the championship, the first time the German has not led this season. Though Mercedes has worked hard to understand the car Toto Wolff labelled “a diva” earlier this year, Vettel is more excited by the upgrades he expects from Ferrari in the coming races.

“At the moment you can say that Mercedes has an edge. Saturdays they’re very strong which obviously has its contribution to Sundays, it’s not a big secret but I think we are strong, we don’t need to hide and there’s plenty of positives. Things are coming, I’m sure they are developing their car. We are developing ours so I’m not so fussed about what they doing.

“I’m more focused on what’s going on inside us, inside Ferrari and it makes me quite positive, what’s coming, so we just need to see and then there’s always the extra element of racing that you can’t predict, that you can’t put down on paper and that’s usually the most exciting bit so I’m very much a fan of that and a fan of the moment and see what we can do.”
