Maurizio Arrivabene says Kimi Raikkonen axe was 'my decision'

Vettel is being roundly criticized for myriad mistakes that he has made at recent races, despite often having the fastest auto in the field.

Vettel spun when fighting with Lewis Hamilton on the opening lap in Monza, and then suffered the same result in similar incidents with Max Verstappen in Japan and Daniel Ricciardo last weekend in Austin.

But Perez has tipped the four-time world champion to bounce back and mount another bid for the title in 2019. "Drivers are just as human as I am, but in situations like that they are treated as professionals", said Arrivabene.

"It is very hard to judge the performance from someone when you are not in the team". So it makes no sense for me to say. We have seen some mistakes but probably at the end he was desperate to try to achieve what was not possible.

"Obviously inside the vehicle it always looks a little bit different than you look from 13 different angles and in slow motion and so on and, by that time, even the last person in the paddock might have an opinion. So next time there will be a gap, I am sure I will go for a gap, but surely it is in the back of your head trying to keep the auto facing the right direction".

"A couple of times he managed to win big races which they probably didn't have the potential to win them". There were a couple of mistakes the second part of the season but he is the only one who can answer why. When you're fighting for the championship, you're so much on the limit all the time, trying to achieve things, as Sergio said, was probably not achievable with the vehicle he had a couple of times and then things happen. "It's not the first time he's in this position but he's the only one who could answer that question".

Vettel's teammate Kimi Raikkonen added mistakes are simply a byproduct of pushing to the limit, something all drivers have to deal with. "I think we've all gone through it, it's part of the game".
