● Lewis Hamil­ton be­lieves Fer­rari are crack­ing un­der the pres­sure of this sea­son’s cham­pi­onship fight af­ter he took an­other ma­jor stride to­wards win­ning the world ti­tle.

Hamil­ton starts the Ja­panese grand prix from the front of the grid af­ter claim­ing an 80th pole po­si­tion of his record-break­ing ca­reer at the Suzuka cir­cuit.

Vet­tel lines up only ninth af­ter an em­bar­rass­ing tyre blun­der by Fer­rari cost the Ger­man dearly in qual­i­fy­ing.

The best Vet­tel can re­al­is­ti­cally hope for in Ja­pan to­day is fourth and if, as ex­pected, Hamil­ton takes the che­quered flag, the Bri­tish driver will move 63 points clear with 100 on the ta­ble. It means the cham­pi­onship could be de­cided as early as the United States grand prix in a fort­night's time. — © The Daily Tele­graph, Lon­don
