00:00 - 00:05Vettel was leading the race from start and Mercedes were hurrying up Hamilton
00:05 - 00:08Ferrari was about to win the race. We can't let that happen.
00:08 - 00:10Then came lap 48, turn 8.
00:11 - 00:16Everything seemed normal, Hamilton on Vettel's tail. Next thing you know...
00:17 - 00:21...Vettel makes a mistake and cuts the corner!
00:21 - 00:24Through the grass!
00:29 - 00:31Tyres full of grass!
00:31 - 00:34He couldn't do one thing about squeezing Hamilton a little!
00:38 - 00:40Because of the grass.
00:41 - 00:47Hamilton should've seen it coming and could cut to the inside to get past.
00:47 - 00:50But we thought we'd help him a little.
00:50 - 00:56So we gave Vettel a 5 second penalty.
00:57 - 00:59But he couldn't do sh*t to prevent it!
00:59 - 01:01We said Hamilton was squeezed off track,
01:04 - 01:06even though that's impossible because of the barriers!
01:06 - 01:08The season is dead!
01:13 - 01:14You know.
01:14 - 01:16The season is dead.
01:16 - 01:20No need for the rest of the races!
01:21 - 01:27The penalty made sure Hamilton won and now even Bottas won't catch him. He can shave his beard.
01:34 - 01:36We got it all in the bag for 'em.
01:36 - 01:39Then there's the fans booing.
01:40 - 01:44"You can't just give the win to the driver you like most", they said.
01:44 - 01:46"The rules should apply to everyone the same."
01:46 - 01:48But we don't care.
01:49 - 01:53They paid for their tickets you know.
01:54 - 01:56So we have their money
01:56 - 01:58and we're giving nothing back!
01:58 - 02:02Then there was the post race incident.
02:05 - 02:07Hear this!
02:09 - 02:10Vettel...
02:10 - 02:12Vett...
02:14 - 02:17Vettel switches the "1" board to his place,
02:17 - 02:20thinking it would change our decision.
02:21 - 02:28The guy being passive agressive in the interview and protecting Hamilton from the crowd.
02:29 - 02:30Weren't they rivals?
02:30 - 02:32They are rivals!
02:36 - 02:39You really have to praise the work my boys did.
02:40 - 02:42The season's dead now.
02:50 - 02:55If Ferrari don't f*ck themselves over, we do it for 'em.
02:56 - 02:58Aren't Ferrari going to complain?
02:58 - 03:04Let them complain. We'll just say we follow the rules.
03:04 - 03:09That's what we always say when we give a controversial penalty. Or when we don't give one.
03:09 - 03:11Like when Hamilton cut the chicane in 2016 in Monaco.
03:16 - 03:20Vettel was furious!
03:23 - 03:26He even said he wanted to become champion in red!
03:31 - 03:36He better forgets it. We'll make sure that never happens
