Hamilton: Fans wrong to boo Vettel after Singapore GP victory

PAPHOTO4_525160Lewis Hamilton says that fans wrong to boo Sebastian Vettel on Singapore Grand Prix top podium. The German was booed after night race victory for Singapore Grand Prix. Also the championship leader continuing the first place finishes for the third consecutive race.

Vettel is closer to a fourth consecutive world title. Vettel is way to his fourth world championship, 60 points ahead of his closest rival Fernando Alonso. The Brit is now 96 points behind Vettel with a maximum of 150 points available in the remaining six races.

“No-one should be booed for their success, no matter how easy or hard it has been for them to get there. Booing is so negative, especially when someone works so hard to be a success.” Hamilton was quoted by BBC Sport.

“I saw a glimpse of him on the podium and I was happy for him. I tried to imagine what it would be like if I was winning races as easy as he has been winning them.”

“It’s every driver’s dream to have a car to be able to fight. Me, I don’t want to be that far ahead. I want to be able to fight with him, or whoever.

“But this is the way it is. It’s definitely not a positive thing to hear he has been booed. He’s on his way to his fourth world championship, and he needs all the credit he deserves.”

Hamilton admitted his title hopes were finished – he is in third place in the championship, 96 points behind Vettel.

“Yeah,” he said. “There’s always fight in me. Even in this race I still drove with the thought I could win, and that will remain the same for the rest of the year. Realistically, he is just less than 100 points ahead of me, he always wins and he is going to continue on that curve.”
