Sebastian Vettel didn't have the best of times on Sunday

Scuderia Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel has been called an 'amateur' driver after his latest performance at last weekend's French Grand Prix. The German collided with Mercedes' Valtteri Bottas on the first corner at Sunday's race which catapulted his chances of winning the race. Vettel is now 14 points behind championship leader, Lewis Hamilton.

But despite Vettel's poor performance on Sunday, Emerson Fittipaldi believes the four time world champion is still favourite to beat Hamilton to the Driver's Championship. Fittipaldi told La Gazzetta dello Sport that Vettel looks nervous after being aggressive on the first lap of the French Grand Prix.

Is he off to Ferrari?

Sauber's young talented Charles Leclerc has claimed that he has heard about the rumours of him potentially being offered a contract to join Scuderia Ferrari. The man from Monaco has been very impressive in 2018 by picking up four top 10 finishes and reaching Q3 at the French Grand Prix qualifying.

It looks as though Force India have already given up on fighting for the fourth spot in the Constructors' Championship. Renault is currently in their aimed position and Force India's deputy team principal Bob Fernley believes the French team have already beaten them to it. Planet F1

After the recent partnership deal of Honda and Red Bull for 2019 and beyond, the engine manufacturer aims to win with their new colleagues. Red Bull have struggled to compete for championships since they last won the driver and constructors' titles in 2013 with Renault.

And Toto Wolff has come out and said the top three teams of Mercedes, Ferrari, and Red Bull are evenly matched despite the silver arrows' dominant display at the French Grand Prix. Ferrari and Renault's engines benefitted a lot more than Mercedes in Canada and Monaco. Crash

Your Formula 1 writer for Sportskeeda. Favourite race? I can't look past the 2011 Canadian Grand Prix. That race had everything in the space of four hours. Favourite track? Azerbaijan's street circuit has grown on me. The last two GPs have been more than dramatic. Favourite driver? I don't have a favourite but I'm currently enjoying the young talent of Charles Leclerc. A one to watch for the future. Any F1 talents? No one could come close to me on F1 2011 (the video game) and used to be able to make F1 car noises until they changed the engines in 2014 ;-)
