Call me a cynic but it's funny how Ferrari improved so much over the enforced 3 week no working allowed Summer break.
Thier is not a word. "Their" is the correct spelling.

Win, Lose or Draw. NOT "Loose"!

It was 4 weeks with a 2 week break.

Okay, I'd forgotten how long the break was. The article I read said 3 weekends without a GP. Ferrari did some great work in the 2 weeks. They seem to have gone from around 0.3 seconds a lap behind Mercedes to 0.4 ahead. That sort of improvement is unheard of in modern F1.

Their engine departments are allowed to work through the break.

I would say Ferrari have finally got around the issues of their car and set-up.  They should have had 3 wins before this in any-case.

Mercedes win the Constructors title (for a record 6 times in a row) and mathematically only Hamilton or Bottas can win the Drivers title.

FIA stewards were lenient on Ferrari again during the race. Moving before the start as Vettel did pretty much always results in a penalty. Leclerc driving a damaged car, which was dangerously shedding carbon fiber (which knocked off one of Hamilton's wing mirrors) and refusing to come into the pits. If the piece of bodywork which hit Hamilton's wing mirror had hit him in the head it could have been a preventable tragedy. The FIA should have flagged Leclerc to come in. After the race (why not during?) they punished Ferrari. A joke $25,000 fine and time penalties for Leclerc so he lost one place.

I'd say he is driving, driving to a 6th world title.

They're all on the radio just as much, listen to the radio channels and you'll see. FOM just choose to broadcast his, probably because he's the driver with most to gain/lose. If it was Vettel in first place and on his way to the title, we'd hear him on the radio for "half of the race" too
