Lewis Hamilton: 'Mercedes chiefs want me to stay'

Lewis Hamilton

Hamilton now leads Vettel by 17 points in the drivers' standings, with Bottas in third place, 20 points behind the Ferrari. I am very happy, I can not hide that I am very happy!

"I don't think that the slight modification in the tread thickness changed the balance of the performance of different cars". "Firstly, we were not quick enough".

By contrast, the track at Barcelona is much better suited to the W09 - as today's dominant performance from Lewis Hamilton demonstrated. I'm almost in it [the groove], I think. Our ambition needs to be that we're better off rather than worse off. "We wanted to take care of the racing car.The ink is nearly dry, and when it is, we'll let you know", Wolff said. Thirdly, it was a poor weekend in terms of reliability.

"I have an issue", he said on the radio with his characteristic understatement and matter-offact existentialism, and it was a technical concern that Ferrari could not diagnose. "We had to stop again and we obviously lost two positions, and also a bit of time during the pit stop itself". 'We have seen there are tracks which suit us well and some that we are not ideal at.

"If I keep this feeling then I'm going to be racing for a long time, but we shall see", said the Brit.

"We are not far from finalising things". [Sunday] was not a good day but it's important to understand why. Grosjean was branded a "first-lap nutcase" by Mark Webber back in 2012, and was also banned for one race that year after he caused a huge shunt in Belgium.

Real are going for their third consecutive Champions League win, which hasn't happened in the Champions League era. On Klopp, Salah told EASPORTS.com : "You know, before everything we are friends".

Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen both suggested this made it more hard for Ferrari to get the tyres working compared to Mercedes.

He added: "The pressure and the passion that I have to win this championship are far greater than I've ever had it". We didn't have winning pace [in Spain], that's why we didn't win. "But I wasn't", he said.

"We investigated the reason why we had this blistering, and to be sure that the track surface played the biggest role and not maybe the new cars or the new compounds we had to wait until Melbourne", said Isola. "But the bottom line is that we are not quick enough to win, and that is what needs to be addressed". That's what we have to address.

Untroubled at the start, Hamilton was able to extend his lead to over six-seconds after the early safety vehicle period and from there was able to control his pace, never once looking in danger of being headed.

"In the next few days there will be meetings and we don't know if the same tyres will be used in France and Britain". We even got lucky with the VSC, otherwise we would have been miles behind Max. Otherwise I stay out, stay in front of Valtteri [Bottas] and finish second.
