Hamilton surprised by lack of Ferrari orders

Hamilton surprised by lack of Ferrari orders

Hamilton was victorious at the Russian Grand Prix after Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas obeyed orders to let him through in Sochi last Sunday, meaning the Briton has now triumphed in three races in a row.

"I remember watching it years ago with Michael [Schumacher] and Rubens [Barrichello], naturally you felt bad for Rubens because he did such a great job and he deserved the win, but on the other side, as a racer, I know what it is to be working for the championship, so they worked as a team to get the result for Michael". "I have found myself in this situation many times in the past, and personally I always believed the collective interest of the team comes before that of an individual driver".

"I'm definitely still allowed to win but it will all depend on the situation", he said.

"But I'm a team player as well and that's what we do".

Lewis Hamilton had a lot of sympathy for Bottas as well as he was seen consoling his teammate after the race and at the podium. Sorry, but I don't think it's true; I don't think we lost direction.

Sebastian Vettel says that Ferrari never had the dominant auto after falling 50 points behind Lewis Hamilton in the Formula 1 championship standings ahead of this weekend's Japanese Grand Prix. "This has been the best performing year so far in my career".

"I know how that race was, the team knows it too so that's all good". I was at the factory on Monday, and I am sure 50 percent of the guys at the factory have the same vibe, but generally the support was quite unbelievable.

McGregor polarises like few others, making the drama that he brings bearable - arguably welcome - for promoters. Taking on the powerful champion from Dagestan in his comeback fight represents a colossal gamble by McGregor.

Vettel, meanwhile, insists he will not spoil his Japanese Grand Prix weekend by reflecting on Hamilton's dominant streak.

"As far as I am aware, when I drive down the straight I'm not allowed to move twice - but there are drivers that do move twice and nothing happens to them".

Even if Vettel wins all five remaining races, he's not guaranteed to beat Hamilton. "Winning is everything, but that time will come later". "I didn't know it was five out of six", he added, referring to Hamilton's run of victories.

Bottas started from pole and was in position for his first win of the year.

"This is the most unusual sport in the sense that you have the Drivers' and Constructors' Championships".

"I didn't want to be up there, and it didn't feel right standing on the top step". "So unlike people watching football or any other sport, where everyone works towards that one goal, there's two goals here". "Honestly, I think that, last weekend, if Lewis didn't have the blister [on his tyres], if he didn't have that much pressure from Sebastian, maybe the team would have not done it".

"I was really surprised that when I pulled out of it I managed to keep the vehicle in one piece and we made it to the second corner and it actually ended up being awesome racing".
