Vettel vows to ´protect´ Ferrari after Japan woe

8 octubre 2017 10:38

Sebastian Vettel believes it is his duty to "protect" Ferrari from inevitable criticism after more reliability issues at the Japanese Grand Prix dealt a potentially fatal blow to his Formula One title chances.

Both Vettel and team-mate Kimi Raikkonen suffered engine problems in Malaysia last time out and another mechanical issue for the German led to an early retirement at Suzuka, leaving him 59 points adrift of Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton.

It means the championship will be sewn up next time out at the United States Grand Prix if Hamilton wins and Vettel places lower than fifth.

But Vettel was in no mood to point the finger of blame at anyone in the team.

"It's normal you're critical, especially if things go wrong, so it's part of our job," he told Sky Sports.

"I think I need to protect them. We've done an incredible job so far. It is obviously a pity the last two races with the reliability issues, but you know, it's like that sometimes.

"Of course it hurts, and we're all disappointed. But now we need to get back, get some rest and then go flat out for the last four races and see what happens."
