Red Bull dominated a quirky second practice session at the Mexican Grand Prix as champion-elect Lewis Hamilton was only seventh fastest.
Max Verstappen was 0.153secs ahead of Daniel Ricciardo, with Renault’s Carlos Sainz 1.233secs back in third.
Hamilton needs to finish seventh to tie up a fifth world title, and if Vettel does not win the race, the Briton will be crowned whatever result he achieves.
Mercedes and Ferrari appear not to have got their cars to work on Friday.
Many of the teams were struggling to get the best out of the fastest hyper-soft tyres and the two Red Bulls were more than a second clear of the field.
The gap between the Red Bulls and Sainz, and between the Spaniard and other midfielders behind, was about normal.
But Hamilton was the fastest Mercedes driver 1.380secs off the pace, and Vettel, the fastest Ferrari in fourth, was 1.234secs behind Verstappen.
Vettel said: “I would be quite happy if I had more grip. It is the track with the least sensitivity on power.
But it has been sort of expected Red Bull were very strong. I don’t think we had a tidy lap. We should have been in front of the Renaults.
“Everybody is on the limit with tyres and trying to get them to work in order to slide less, with the exception maybe of the Red Bulls.”
Vettel added that Ferrari had decided to stick with their old aerodynamic package, after comparing it with a new one in the first session.
Verstappen was also quickest in the first session, again from Ricciardo, and that time by 0.483secs.
But what had been looking like a very good day for Red Bull turned a little sour at the end of the session, when the Dutchman pulled off with a technical problem at the end of the main straight.
Verstappen said: “We have a good car, good downforce and good mechanical grip. Unfortunately our day ended with a hydraulic issue, but other than that our day has been really good.”
