After winning the Hungarian Grand Prix in late July, Vettel led by 14 points, with both drivers on four wins heading into the summer break.But after crashing out on the first lap in Sunday's Singapore GP, the Ferrari driver trails Hamilton by 28 .Hamilton has won all three races relatively comfortably since the championship resumed in August, and with only six GPs remaining Vettel faces a huge task to stop him.It will be abundantly harder now for Vettel because, unlike last season, Hamilton has so far not retired from any races.Vettel apologized to his Ferrari team afterward.Mercedes faced a similar scenario at the Spanish GP last year, when Hamilton and then-teammate Nico Rosberg collided on the first lap and both went out.Although team orders are very unlikely to be imposed, it is clear – unofficially at least – that Bottas will be racing to help Hamilton equal Vettel on four world titles.
