• Team championship can be clinched in Abu Dhabi• Sebastian Vettel out to equal Sir Jackie Stewart’s 27 winsChristian Horner on Thursday hailed Red Bull’s third successive year of domination in Formula One as “for sure our biggest achievement.” And the team principal suggested that Sebastian Vettel could go on to emulate and even beat Michael Schumacher’s record of seven titles when he said: “I can quite easily see him with us for another five years.”Red Bull are poised to become only the fourth team to win a hat-trick of constructors’ championship in Abu Dhabi this weekend. Vettel, meanwhile, is favourite to land another hat-trick – the drivers’ title – in Texas or Brazil later this month.Horner could be forgiven his moment of pride, because his claims are justified. Formula One, dreading another period of monotonous domination so soon after the Schumacher/Ferrari era, changed the rules this year, especially in relation to the blown diffuser and the flexi-wing, to emasculate the runaway bulls from Milton Keynes.The plan was to drag Red Bull back into the pack.

• Mercedes suffering worst run since return to F1 • Hamilton ‘more driven’ to scoring points for struggling teamLewis Hamilton has said he has had no second thoughts regarding his move to Mercedes in the wake of their dismal form.Since Hamilton announced he was quitting McLaren after 14 years and signing a three-year deal with Mercedes, the German team have failed to score a point in three races.It is Mercedes’ worst run since they returned to Formula One at the start of 2010, in contrast to the fact that in their previous 52 grands prix they had missed scoring on only four occasions.It would further appear to highlight the folly of Hamilton’s switch, which he has long stated was because he wanted a new challenge. On the evidence of Mercedes’ woeful run, it may be he has bitten off more than he can chew if he is hoping to revive their fortunes.Asked about Mercedes’ run, Hamilton said: “It makes me even more driven to help them score points, and no, I’m not thinking ‘have I made right decision?’ I’m very happy with the decision I made. What is happening to them doesn’t have any impact on that.”People do sometimes lose their way.
