Proud Lewis Hamilton not worried about complacency on Formula One title run

"I have been in cross-country races when I was a kid, and I have just run out of stamina to keep going, but that hasn't been a problem this year".

Although Ferrari had the fastest auto at the Belgian Grand Prix, the Mercedes has re-emerged as the leading vehicle over the Prancing Horse.

"The target is to just put the points, not win every race".

Vettel has dropped from leading the title race to trailing Hamilton by 67 points in just seven grands prix, with his rival winning six of those and now enjoying a four-race victory streak.

"Surely it didn't help when we finished sixth and they won the race".

After Ferrari's error in qualifying which saw Vettel start the race in eighth, he made up to fourth on the first lap before his race-defining attempt to pass Verstappen dropped him down the field. "If you want to talk about race incident, I accept this version, but the fact is, we weren't able to exploit all of our potential". "But our job sometimes is to challenge the impossible". "I mean, yesterday we had the problem that everybody knows".

Southgate expects youthful England to cope with Croatia's empty stadium
Southgate said: "It means Croatia don't get the energy the home support can give you in those moments when you're under pressure".

"This track is awesome, I'm having the best day", Hamilton whooped over the team radio not even halfway through the 90-minute session, revelling in the speed of his Mercedes as he swept round and round Suzuka's rollercoaster curves.

"Sebastian is making a lot of mistakes this year, he is his biggest enemy", said the flamboyant fomer F1 boss, speaking to Nico Rosberg in the 2016 world champion's latest "Beyond Victory" podcast. It's really weird - obviously, I have been racing a long, long time, but the happiness I have inside is as high as always. Until recently Ferrari appeared to have the quickest auto on the grid, but failed to capitalise.

You could argue that Ferrari have had the better vehicle over the course of this season so far, but Hamilton and Mercedes in particular have been more operationally efficient in comparison. Hamilton, as a result, goes into the next race in the United States very much as the favourite.

The Briton will become only the third driver to win five titles or more if he scores eight points more than Vettel in Texas next week.

"If you look, we have the news about the penalty very, very late, Sebastian was doing his job and as far as I know, his auto was inside so then if you want to talk about race incidents, I accept this version but the fact is that we were not able to exploit all our potential".

When asked about the championship almost being closed, Vettel said: "You say almost".
