Ferrari boss: Mercedes can't cope with losing


Hamilton explained that he was not suggesting that there was anything illegal or irregular being used by Ferrari.

AT A GLANCE: Live coverage of qualifying for the Italian Grand Prix airs Saturday at 8:55 a.m. on TSN 5 and 8:45 a.m. on RDS. "I think at Spa we made a significant step forward, and we will continue to do that. Same for the others".

Hamilton, who was seeking a fifth consecutive Monza pole, said: "We gave it everything". The close competition is great for the sport, and it is pushing us to limits that we didn't even know we could go to.

Hamilton was not scheduled to be at Thursday's traditional news conference but was due to appear before the media at Mercedes' hospitality area.

Vettel has finished on the podium at Monza three times as a Ferrari driver - second in 2015 and third in 2016 and 2017 - and said he has cherished the atmosphere as the fans invade the track.

Hamilton's championship lead has been cut to 17 points after Vettel's victory in Belgium, while Mercedes only extended their constructors' advantage over Ferrari to 15 points because of Kimi Raikkonen's DNF. But, he admitted that he enjoys coming to Monza and seeing the Tifosi's passion for Ferrari.

"I think the last sector was OK but also not fantastic".

"On circuits where efficiency is important, like Silverstone, like Spa, we got good results and I think that is a good base for the rest of the season".

But for the last four years Ferrari have had their nose rubbed in it by successive wins for Mercedes, stretching the gap since the Scudderia triumphed there back to 2010 when Fernando Alonso lifted the trophy.

Vettel became F1's then-youngest race victor when he triumphed in Monza in 2008 with Toro Rosso.

A Ferrari win this weekend would not only reinforce their charge toward the title, but also end four years of Mercedes domination at the fastest track on the F1 calendar.

Ericsson's Sauber suddenly veered left under braking for the opening corner at Monza which sent the 27-year-old into the barrier and then barrel-rolling through the air.

"It really depends which color, which engine you have in the back", Vettel said with a smile.

Bottas is still waiting for his first win of the season after 13 races, as a variety of setbacks have all but eliminated his own title hopes.

"We talk after", the German told his team after they interrupted his celebrations to deliver the bad news that he had, in fact, qualified second. It was just not a good lap and not good enough.

"To be honest, I don't feel anything for Mercedes, but I feel for Ferrari and especially this weekend on home soil", Vettel, 31, added.
