FORMULA 1 : VETTEL IS ON THE ROPES!

Author : cmunroe

Scuderia Ferrari designed and executed a dramatic coup by winning the first race of the 2017 F1 season. Mercedes AMG Petronas was not amused and despite still being a youngster in the F1 members club – with only a trio of Championship titles, compared to a dozen plus four for the prancing horse – the situation was untenable!

HAMILTON

So war was declared and we are feted at each round of the bout as the pugilists engage in relentless pummeling!Vettel’s pace was real though and a collision, involving several forces, saw Vettel leaping to a 20+ points-advantage over Mercedes’ social media tycoon – Hamilton.┬áThe rivalry claimed fever-pitch in Azerbaijan when Vettel introduced a new body slamming routine!

But, Hamilton relishes a challenge and heading home – Silverstone – he had a burdensome 20 points deficit around his neck. His concern and dismay became evident when he went m.i.a. for one of the publicity events. On track, however, Hamilton’s mental fortitude shone.

His level was beyond that of the snail-paced chasing pack. And aided by an evil tyre spell, which punctured Vettel’s podium quest, Hamilton’s P1 finish allowed him to devour Vettel’s points gap.

Vettel is on the ropes, begging for the bell! Will Hamilton land another crushing blow and grab the championship lead? Can Vettel survive the onslaught?

The gloves will be off in Hungary this weekend! Will the wild cards Ricciardo and Bottas crash the party?
