Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel should be on the cusp of a fifth world championship according to a latest article found on ESPN.

As we have already mentioned, Vettel looks to be down and nearly out of this year's championship running after another error of judgement from Sunday's race at the Singapore Grand Prix.

There are just six races remaining on the 2018 calendar and somehow, someway the German will need to turn it all around.

ESPN have pin pointed where it all went wrong for Vettel this season.

Thinking time for Mr Stroll

Williams are still in 'limbo' over their driver's line-up for 2019 as their current recruit Lance Stroll's future is still not yet decided.

Stroll is heavily linked to join his father, Lawrence Stroll, at Racing Point Force India after his Dad brought the team.

The Canadian could join the Silverstone based team in a matter of days but it seems as though the bosses back at Williams have no idea what Stroll plans to do according to Planet F1.

Esteban Ocon is expected to depart Force India which has annoyed many F1 fans including the Mercedes Team Principal Toto Wolff.

Stroll to Force India for the remainder of the season?
