"Overall he was better and he did a better job. said.
"I wanted to make a difference but today is his day, this year his age and he deserved it."
"Obviously we're going to have to deal with what's left, we're disappointed at the moment, next year will be a different story because everything will start again, but for now, we have to give the best man the right and this year's best." said.
"I'm not afraid of it, and I like to compete with him, and frankly I would like to have more struggles this year, but in general they were in better shape," said Vettel.
