Vettel built up just enough of a gap to pit and re-join ahead of Verstappen, but more crucially, Hamilton.

The second round came in China. Like in Australia a fortnight earlier, Vettel qualified in second, alongside Hamilton, getting on the front row by just one thousandth of a second from Valtteri Bottas.
The race started in damp, but drying conditions. Vettel quickly opted to put on the dry tyres during a Virtual Safety Car period. This dropped him to sixth, but with the five cars in front still on intermediates on a now drying circuit, Vettel was in position to take the lead.
However, a crash for Antonio Giovinazzi on the pit straight brought out the Safety Car, meaning Vettel couldn't take advantage.

Hamilton's victory saw Vettel's lead at the top of the championship standings cut by the Brit to six points. Vettel was beaten to pole by Räikkönen by less than a tenth, but took the lead during the one and only pit stop window halfway through the race; Vettel staying out a five laps longer to "overcut" the Finn.
With closest title rival Hamilton only finishing 7th, Vettel's lead at the top of the standings increased to 25 points, the equivalent of a race win.
Canada saw Vettel's record of finishing first or second in every race in come to an end. Having qualified second, Vettel slipped to fourth at the start and contact with Verstappen caused his front wing to be damaged.
Pitting to fix the problem, Vettel re-entered in 18th and last. He also had damage to his floor, but the championship leader worked his way through the pack and after stopping again with 20 laps to go, Vettel was up to 7th.
Title rival Hamilton cruised to his sixth Montreal victory and with it reduced Vettel's championship advantage to 12 points.
Vettel also finished 4th in Azerbaijan. After Bottas and Räikkönen collided at the start, Vettel moved up to 2nd. The race was full of incident, featuring three Safety Cars and a red flag.

Starting 3rd, Vettel lost a place to Verstappen at the start and remained behind the Red Bull until undercutting him during the pit-stop window.
With Hamilton winning and teammate Räikkönen in 2nd, Vettel was on track for a podium, before Bottas, on much fresher supersoft tyres, breezed past.
A late puncture for Räikkönen appeared to have put Vettel back on the podium again, but he too suffered the same fate on the penultimate lap and dropped four places, costing him nine points.
In Hungary , Vettel took his 2nd pole position of the season; his 3rd in Budapest and the 48th of his career. A hydraulic issue appeared on the morning of the race, but the problem was fixed before the start.
Starting the race from the front, Vettel maintained the lead at turn one from teammate Räikkönen. However, another issue, this time steering, would affect Vettel throughout the race, allowing Räikkönen and the two Mercedes of Bottas and Hamilton to put him under huge pressure.
The world champions swapped their drivers, giving Hamilton the chance to challenge the Ferraris and would swap them back if the triple world champion couldn't get past.
He didn't and allowed Bottas back through at the final corner of the last lap. It was announced in Belgium that Vettel had signed a new three-year deal with Ferrari, keeping him at the Scuderia until Vettel then arrived in Italy for Ferrari's home race.
In a wet qualifying session, which contained a 2 and a half-hour delay, he could only qualify in 8th, but would start 6th due to penalties for the two Red Bulls.
After maintaining position at the start, Vettel quickly passed teammate Räikkönen, Lance Stroll and Esteban Ocon to move into the podium positions.
However, Mercedes would dominate, nearly a second a lap quicker on average throughout, leaving Vettel having to settle for third in front of the Tifosi and over half a minute behind.
Hamilton's 4th victory at Monza meant for the first time in , Vettel wouldn't be leading the championship and was now trailing the Brit by three points after the final European race of the season.

Both of Vettel's flying laps in Q3 were good enough for pole; his 4th at the Marina Bay circuit.
However, Vettel retired on the opening lap of the race which began in damp conditions after colliding with Räikkönen and Verstappen and having tried to continue, he soon hit the wall.
It was the first time in Formula One history that both Ferraris retired from the first lap of a Grand Prix.
To compound Vettel's misery, title rival Hamilton, who had started fifth, avoided the first lap chaos, took the lead and went on to take his 60th career victory.
His 3rd win in Singapore meant Hamilton had a point advantage over Vettel. Vettel's title hopes were dealt another blow in Malaysia , where Ferrari were the quickest car and Mercedes were struggling, after a turbo problem caused him to not set a time in qualifying.
Having limped home at the end of final practice, Ferrari were forced to put Vettel's fourth and final internal combustion engine of the season in the car, but the turbo remained the problem.
Starting last, Vettel fought his way back through the field and eventually finished 4th, although Hamilton's second-place finish extended his championship lead to 34 points.
A bizarre crash with the Williams of Lance Stroll on the cool-down in-lap at the end of the race added more misery for Vettel; neither would be penalised.
It was feared Vettel's gearbox would have been damaged, causing him to have a five-place grid penalty at the following race, but Ferrari confirmed it was still available to use.
If Vettel were mathematically still in the championship, realistically, his now slim hopes of a fifth world title were ended in Japan.
More reliability issues befell the Ferrari; a spark plug problem just minutes before the race, which saw Vettel's engine cover needing to be taken off.
Ferrari believed the issue was fixed, with Vettel starting the race in second in what was a must-win race. However, the spark plug issue remained, and Vettel soon retired from the race.
