Re: Is there any doubt anymore about Hamilton vs. Vettel?

Hamilton has been preforming better than Vettel this season. Too many unforced errors from Vettel's side, already in the previous season that continued into this one. Vettel got the car with which to be able to win the championship, but with this level of under-performing he won't. Just that one car...

Poor Bottas being called a wing man. Why? He was 66 points behind and on his 3rd engine already.
