Hind site is wonderful and cheap from me. Not sure if I made a comment earlier in the season, that I suspected Ferrari will have engine issues this year.
Vettel swapped a Engine very early on this year and so did Kimi a little later (may be wrong with Kimi) and I thought to myself, they may need new bits later in the season. Do not believe I am quite correct, because a spark plug is really an unheard issue for me.
Sad though that the challenge seems to be over, However, Hamilton has not had his compliment of bad luck this year and two DNF’s change the game.
The deep dark for Vettel is his former Alma mater - Red Bull. How many points they take away from Ferrari until the curtain falls. Points they take from Merc is equally important, but the he won’t be focused on that.
