Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton has revealed that he believes Sebastian Vettel's dominance in Formula 1 could bore fans of the sport.
Hamilton likened Vettel's current dominance to the period between 2000-2004 where Michael Schumacher won five of his seven championships.
Quoted on BBC Sport, the 2008 World Champion said: "I remember waking up to watch the start of the race then going to sleep and waking up when it ended because I knew what would happen. I am pretty sure a lot of people are doing that today."
Indeed, Vettel will win the World Championship if he finishes first at the next Grand Prix and Fernando Alonso fails to finish higher than eighth. Whilst that is unlikely, Vettel is almost certain to wrap up the Championship in the next two or three races.
It will complete a remarkable season for the German, one in which he will win his fourth consecutive world title.
Hamilton was quick to praise his F1 rival, and stated that he deserves all the plaudits coming his way.
"He has driven well all year, I've just looked at his points and he has had second, first, second, first all year. He's done the perfect job and he deserves it," Hamilton said.
Speaking after the Singapore Grand Prix on the BBC, the Briton said that: "no-one should be booed for their success, no matter how easy or hard it has been for them to get there."
He was speaking in reference to boos that Vettel had received after the race in Singapore.
Hamilton will be hoping for an improved season next year, as he looks to add to his single championship.
