What Vettel said to Hamilton after losing world title

SEBASTIAN Vettel has revealed what he said to Lewis Hamilton in the immediate aftermath of finishing second in the Mexican Grand Prix to hand the Brit the world championship.

Hamilton was guaranteed to become champion if he finished seventh or higher or if Vettel failed to win in Mexico City, with the now five-time winner coming home in fourth despite suffering with tyre problems throughout the race.

Vettel refused to give much of a review on his season and where it went wrong after the race, but he did reveal what he said to Hamilton, who moves ahead of him in the all-time list of world title winners.
