Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel has denied Hamilton's assertion that he has made F1 predictable.

Drawing a comparison with the Schumacher era, Lewis Hamilton last week said that Sebastian Vettel's current dominance risked turning fans off the sport.

Quoted on the BBC in reference to Schumacher's dominance, Hamilton 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," said Hamilton.

He then said, in reference to Vettel's dominance, "I am pretty sure a lot of people are doing that today."

However, Vettel has responded to Hamilton's comments by saying to Sky Sports

"It's very different [from the Schumacher era].

"There was one race in Singapore which was an exception, but if you take Korea the gap was between three and ten seconds for the whole race.

"If you look at ten years ago, the gap was thirty to sixty seconds - which is a big difference."

If Vettel wins the next race at Suzuka, he will win his fourth consecutive world championship, as long as Ferrari's Fernando Alonso finishes below eighth position.

That is mightily impressive for a man who is only 25 years of age.

The German could potentially continue in formula one for the next 10 to 15 years, if his supreme relationship with Red Bull continues. But the championships will stop coming when he gets bored.

Mercedes' Hamilton is one of a number of drivers hoping to spoil Vettel's party, as things stand, the Brit will have to wait until next season before he can mount a realistic championship challenge.
