Vettel hates now or never approach for fifth title

Vettel hates now or never approach for fifth title

Team orders have been around for about as long as Formula 1 has, whether that's Tony Brooks handing over his Vanwall to Stirling Moss at Aintree in 1957 or Valtteri Bottas letting Lewis Hamilton win the Russian Grand Prix 61 years later.

He said any decision would be made on a "case-by-case basis".

"There have been times when Valtteri's not, for example, been in the top five and there's been me and the Ferraris, and the Ferraris have worked together".

Hamilton's advantage over Sebastian Vettel has grown from 14 to 50 points courtesy of his hat-trick of wins in Italy, Singapore and Russian Federation, the last of those a 1-2 finish for Mercedes.

Vettel, however, denied that Ferrari has consistently had the better auto, insisting the difference between them and Mercedes has been minimal.

Hamilton paid tribute to Bottas, pointing to the outpouring of love shown to his team-mate on a visit to the Mercedes factory in Brackley, England, earlier this week.

Up until last Sunday, Mercedes had largely allowed their drivers to race, but Bottas admitted he now faces the prospect of being told to step aside once more for Hamilton with only five races and 125 points left to fight over.

Hamilton was also asked if team orders should be banned in Formula One. But you're one individual that I pay to drive the auto.

"It's a team sport".

Apple writes software to stop home repairs
Meanwhile, for the iMac Pro, it will be locked only if the logic board or flash storage is replaced. Apple is locking down certain Macs from third-party repairs, according to a report from MacRumors .

"Now, you never know where you are in comparison with the others, maybe they have done smaller steps or bigger steps, I don't know".

It is a position the German team have enjoyed for most of the season yet once again they are taking nothing for granted.

Hamilton has now won five of the last six races and could potentially wrap up the championship by the Mexican Grand Prix later this month.

"That's what I live for and you don't always get to experience what your target is but I'm just really grateful for how the races have panned out". "I can not fight for the championship anymore, Lewis is fighting for it, I'm a team player and I'm willing to help". As a team, it was the best result we could hope for. I will do it again.

"The way they do that is they'll stop one auto which means then I'll have to stop". I was at the factory on Monday, and I am sure 50 percent of the guys at the factory have the same vibe, but generally the support was quite unbelievable. That's how it is. "It's artificial. Now we are in Japan, I think Mario Kart, if you remember - it might be more fun to throw bananas out of the cockpit". The team might not want to sacrifice my race as well. Having got himself into a winning position, and, despite the prior agreement, Rubens was reluctant to let Michael by and when the final switch happened in view of the finish line it created negativity both within the team and for those watching at the track and on television.

Vettel is still hoping he can revive his title campaign.

"Suzuka will be another challenging weekend for us", declared Mercedes F1 boss Toto Wolff, whose team are 53 points clear of Ferrari in the constructors' standings.

"We know one DNF or mistake [for Hamilton] and it could disappear quickly. You have to accept it and move forwards". The track is different, the circumstances are different.
