Vettel: '18 F1 title defeat not as bad as 'lowest point' in '09

Sebastian Vettel says missing out on the 2009 F1 world championship was harder to take than his title defeat to Lewis Hamilton this season.
The Ferrari driver has only been beaten in a direct title battle on one other occasion in his F1 career, having finished just 11 points behind Jenson Button in 2009 during his first season with Red Bull.
A wrong direction in development also played a role, as Ferrari slipped behind Mercedes in the pecking order after an aerodynamic upgrade introduced in Singapore backfired.
