Sebastian Vettel will not leave Ferrari despite championship disappointment

F1: Ferrari (NYSE:RACE) Team Boss says,

Hamilton can now seal the title at the next grand prix in the United States after Vettel hit Max Verstappen and spun in Japan, which limited him to sixth place.

Four-time champion Vettel began the season well but conceded his lead at the top of the standings at the French Grand Prix in June, where he served a five-second penalty after clipping Mercedes' Valtteri Bottas.

It is a measure of Lewis Hamilton's total mastery of the track that Sebastian Vettel has been reduced to the type of self-damaging, gung-ho gamble that practically gift-wrapped the world title for the Briton here on Sunday, said the Daily Mail.

"I feel the media need to show a little more respect for Sebastian", he wrote in a message posted to his Instagram story on Tuesday.

"I had similar encounters with others and we managed to make it through the corner.

But you ask me these questions so I give you my answer".

While a dominant Hamilton, who will visit the Mercedes factory in Brackley, Northamptonshire on Wednesday, has secured six victories in seven rounds of remarkable racing, Vettel and Ferrari's championship challenge has fallen dramatically off the rails.

"I think we have a lot of potential".

Within the space of a few weeks, the 2018 Formula One title race has gone from an intriguing head-to-head battle to little more than a victory procession for Lewis Hamilton.

The Ferrari driver has seen the position of strength he enjoyed earlier this year progressively crumble on the back of mistakes, strategy errors by his team and a dwindling performance level of his auto. You don't need to win every race to win the championship.

"We will give everything and there are still important things we can learn and understand about the auto". Every single race I want battles like Monza.

Vettel has accepted the unlikelihood of a shock twist for the championship title and has suggested there is still some value in the upcoming races for himself the Ferrari team.

"We go to the next race and hopefully we'll put the things where we are happier with them and we'll be up there".

"It is very hard to pass around here and follow up the hill, and with the fast corners that we have, but I thought that I could play with the auto and make the tyres last reasonably well", said Vettel. "Austin is usually a good track for us, so I can't wait to unleash this beast there".

"I've seen many black swans swimming across the pond in my life. that's why I'd rather wait until it's really done".
