Lewis Hamilton was NOT the better driver this season but deserves F1 title – Vettel

Lewis Hamilton was NOT the better driver this season but deserves F1 title – Vettel

The Ferrari driver saw his hopes of securing a fifth Formula One championship of his career ended at the Mexican Grand Prix after he failed to finish in the top two.

That situation meant Mercedes man Hamilton went level with him on four titles, three short of record holder Michael Schumacher on seven.

Hamilton is 56 points clear of Vettel with the Brazilian and Abu Dhabi Grands Prix to go before the end of the 2017 campaign.

Vettel says he’s gone toe-to-toe with Hamilton this year though.

Asked if Hamilton won the F1 title because he was the better driver or had the better car, Vettel replied: “I don’t like that. We had a straight fight.

“It was great for us this year, as well for them, but I don’t want to in any way take any glory away from him. He deserves every bit of it.

“Two races to go, he seals the championship and he deserves to win.”

Vettel and Hamilton will battle it out for supremacy at Brazil’s Autodromo Jose Carlos Pace this weekend.

The F1 season draws to a close at Abu Dhabi’s Yas Marina circuit on Sunday November 26.

Vettel will be hoping to take maximum points from those races to close the gap on Hamilton in the drivers’ standings.
