Ferrari has a chance to win, but only if Lewis Hamilton makes mistakes," he told Radio Capital.

The flamboyant Italian also thinks Hamilton has the upper hand for another reason.

"Hamilton is just stronger than Vettel," said Briatore. "Sebastian has to fight a lot harder to keep his car under control.  Lewis has found his rhythm in his car so that makes it easier for him."

"They should take Kimi out of the cockpit and give it to Leclerc.  Otherwise they'll never win the constructors' trophy again.  They have to take that risk," he said.
