Vettel faces grid penalty for US Grand Prix red flag error

Vettel faces grid penalty for US Grand Prix red flag error

Lewis Hamilton described Juan Manuel Fangio as the "godfather" of Formula One on Thursday and said it was insane to think he could soon join the late Argentine as a five times world champion.

Mercedes man Hamilton needs to outscore Vettel by eight points to be sure of his title coronation on Sunday evening.

"As I say, personally I think it's a rubbish regulation".

The sort of social leap Hamilton, now a global superstar with the fortune to match, has achieved would have been inconceivable when the European-dominated Formula One world championship started up in 1950. It affects the race, it affects the qualifying, it's just not a good penalty. "Now Lewis winning five titles and matching Fangio is a great achievement and, if one driver had to do that from our generation, then I am happy it is Lewis because he has shown the talent and the commitment".

Hamilton had no envy of Fangio's era, however - a time of frequent driver funerals and also an age completely alien to his background as the grandson of 1950s Caribbean immigrants to England.

Could the same also be said for Hamilton?

"I believe the great drivers are those that competed with no seatbelts, no crash helmets, and if you were involved in an accident there was a 50-50 chance you would die". Which probably I should do next time.

The British driver is the emperor of Austin, unbeaten on U.S. soil since 2013.

"You know when you tell me to go steady, I am not going to", Hamilton said over the team radio. "We are focusing on making sure we deliver". There are still 100 points available so we can just never be complacent in a championship as intense as this. He's come and been a part of our team in a couple of weekends, like previous year and he's very attentive and he's got great talent as his dad had. "Each crime is always going to be a little bit different and it's down to the referee to deal with each individual situation as it arises because I think we try through all these team manager meetings and whatever else to come up with penalties and rule for absolutely everything, but every circumstance is always a little bit different". "I think I saw the red flag, I slowed down, had a look around where a auto was potentially stuck in a wall if there was one around turns nine or ten then slowed down significantly to comply with the rules".
