Lewis Hamilton forced to put his F1 title party on hold

Lewis Hamilton forced to put his F1 title party on hold

Vettel's championship chances took another hit at the U.S. Grand Prix on Sunday when he started fifth on the grid due to a penalty and was then involved in a collision on the opening lap with Daniel Ricciardo.

"I wasn't really disappointed with the decision at any point".

Brawn said the Finn was "perfect" in ending a 113-race wait for a victory and did it "with great style".

But Hamilton was losing time and pitted in the 38th lap with his tires blistering, coming out in fourth place, though quickly set the fastest lap as he looked to chase Raikkonen down again.

But Hamilton lost the lead to Raikkonen as soon as the race started, with the Ferrari taking the lead from the start, but seemed to be back on track for the title as Vettel spun whilst jousting with Ricciardo and dropped right down the pack.

"Not where I wanted to finish, but I really enjoyed the race and getting to be in a battle with these cars with these guys was awesome", he said.

In fact, he looked very good, nearly like he hadn't missed a beat since his dominating effort in Houston that closed out the ALCS. The last 10 teams to win the first two games of the World Series - and 16 of the last 17 - have gone on to win it all.

The move backfired as Hamilton ran out of rubber, and had to stop twice, meaning he finished only third behind victor Kimi Raikkonen and the Red Bull of Max Verstappen. With eight laps to go, the top three were covered by a little more than two seconds. I didn't know. If that was me and Seb, for example, I would have been a lot more tighter and more aggressive if we were fighting for the championship, but there was no need.

The 33-year-old needs just five points to close out the title, meaning seventh in Mexico City on Sunday will be enough to get the job done with two rounds to spare.

"There was definitely a lesson learned for us and we'll definitely go to the drawing board but performance-wise it wasn't our greatest weekend". "I am not sure about the reasoning for the early stop". The only thing I was interested in was to know what would happen. "In the championship, the numbers are against us, but we will knuckle down and fight all the way to the end, just as we did today". "Ultimately we wanted to win the race today and I think going backwards two steps is not a good result but as I said, you can't win them all, you can't always get them flawless".

Despite often promising much over the last couple of seasons, Ferrari have not been able to go the distance with Mercedes and yet again see their title aspirations in tatters.

Kimi Raikkonen wins the US Grand Prix in Austin - his first win in five years - as Lewis Hamilton fails to clinch the drivers title with a third place finish.
