Sebastian Vettel is refusing to give up the belief that he can retain his championship crown this season, despite having failed to win a race this season so far.
The German is 95 points adrift of leader Nico Rosberg after just nine races, but with a maximum of 275 points still up for grabs this year, Vettel says it’d be “stupid” to rule him out.
“If you look at points and mathematics we can still fight for the world championship, so it would be stupid to say we’re out,” said the Red Bull driver.
However he concedes it will be very difficult to beat the dominant Mercedes duo.
