Confident Vettel doubts title will be decided 'on one single moment'

Confident Vettel doubts title will be decided 'on one single moment'

Sebastian Vettel still has the “absolute belief” that he can overtake Lewis Hamilton to become the 2019 driver’s champion, and has dismissed the idea that this weekend’s Azerbaijan Grand Prix will ultimately be make or break for his title chances.

The German is a four-time world champion but not since 2013 has he finished the season as number one, with his last two title assaults ending fairly prematurely in favour of Lewis Hamilton.

He has had a disappointing start to 2019, too, as he has claimed just one podium spot out of the opening three races.

Despite a deficit of 31 points to Hamilton already in place, Vettel still thinks he can win this year’s championship, and doesn’t think the upcoming race in Baku will be decisive either way.

"I have the absolute belief that I can be world champion,” he said.

"I know some people like to put it that this is the decider, but we have a lot of races left.

"Hopefully at one point we can look back and say this was the decider or the decisive moment but right now I don't know and I don't really care.

"We want to win, but that's for any race we go to. I think we have a very strong package and I'm confident if we can get it in the right place then we should be able to show that and give the others a very, very hard time.

"I'm not thinking that it all depends on one single moment."
