Toto Wolff is not counting Lewis Hamilton's title chickens just yet

Lewis Hamilton defends Sebastian Vettel and urges 'respect' from media Lewis Hamilton: 'Media need to show Sebastian Vettel more respect'

Vettel finished the grand prix in sixth place while his title rival Lewis Hamilton won, taking a 67-point advantage into the next race, the United States Grand Prix.

No matter the right or wrong, Villeneuve says Suzuka means Vettel and Ferrari's titles hopes are definitely now over.

The most simple way for Hamilton to win the title would be to replicate the results of the last two races, in Russian Federation and Japan, by leading home Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas in a one-two finish.

I feel the media need to show a little more respect for Sebastian.

Third place went to Warner Bros.'s "Smallfoot", with earnings of $14.9 million in its second weekend. That also exceeded expectations that had the film bringing in around $30 million.

While the Briton has often been critical of Vettel, not least following their scrap in Sochi a week ago, Hamilton has always admitted enjoying the prospect of going head-to-head with the four-time champion. "It is to be expected that being humans we will make mistakes but it is how we get through them that counts".

"Max didn't start badly - I would say it was an average start", Marko looked back when speaking to Auto Motor und Sport. "Yes he risked a lot, but that's just part of the game in formula one".

"Now concerning the future races, I know the situation looks impossible but our job sometimes is to challenge the impossible and this is what we are going to do, we try to do for the future four races".

If the championship goes to Mexico's race the following weekend, Hamilton will secure the championship if his lead is 50 points or more by the end of that round.

Rail and road links in the area are also suspended, and gas and electricity supplies have been disrupted. The 16km evacuation zone covers about 30 populated localities with nearly 20,000 residents.

Vettel refuses to concede however, and speaking in the wake of Sunday's disaster he echoed his beloved Monty Python's Black Knight as he insisted it isn't over. "Already at the last race we could see that he [Vettel] has accepted he cannot win".

"Austin is usually a good track for us, so I can't wait to unleash this beast there", said the British driver.

"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 vehicle and make the tyres last reasonably well", said Vettel.
