Hamilton clarifies Vettel comments

Lewis Hamilton clarifies his comments about Sebastian Vettel following the Korean Grand Prix
Lewis Hamilton has moved to clarify comments he made about Sebastian Vettel following the Korean Grand Prix.

The Mercedes driver suggested that Vettel's current dominance was causing F1 fans to turn off, comparing it to the run of success enjoyed by Michael Schumacher while at Ferrari.

His comments, which came after Vettel won in Korea to move to within touching distance of a fourth straight title, divided opinion amongst F1 fans with the Briton clarifying his comments in a series of posts on his personal Twitter account.

"Good morning all," he wrote. "Read some of the stories/reports of my comments on Seb. Feel the need to clarify my thoughts. Seb is a great champion! Not only that, he is a great human being who is funny and humble. Deserves all the success he is having!

"I admire his dedication and ability to consistently perform without mistakes. This is the mark of a true champion. Regardless of what you and I may think about his car, at the end of the day he's doing the perfect job.

"I'm just grateful I get to drive in an era with so many great drivers like him."

Vettel has the chance to sew up his fourth world title in a row at the Japanese Grand Prix this weekend if he wins
