"Lewis Hamilton's poor performance is getting boring for fans, says Sebastian Vettel"

From The Daily Mirror:

The German racing driver compared Hamilton's disappointing drives to that of long-time also-rans David Coulthard, Johnnie Herbert and Eddie Irvine.

The consistent loss of form of former World Champions such as Kimi Raikonnen, Lewis Hamilton and Jensen Button is turning Formula 1 into a snoozefest for fans, according to the likeable young German.

The German romped to his fourth successive victory in a Wacky Races of a Korean Grand Prix to move to the brink of a fourth successive title. The Red Bull racer chalked up his sixth win in eight races and eighth of the year, even if it was not by the 30-second margin of the last round in Singapore.

He also moves 77 points clear of Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso, who is at least putting up a fight.

“I feel for the British fans because I remember watching when Damon Hill threw away Championship after Championship,” said Vettel. “I remember watching the start, going to sleep, then waking up when it ended because I already knew what would happen.

"Hill's car would fail, he'd make an unforced error and hit a tyre wall or Schumacher would shunt him off in the last lap of the 1994 Australian Grand Prix.

"Which was pretty shitty of him, even I as a German would admit that."
