Lewis Hamilton says that this season is very difficult because so many teams on top of sport. After three races in this season, McLaren, Ferrari and Mercedes reach top of the podium and also defending world champion Red Bull still fighting for podium.
“It is very difficult this season, you look at qualifying, I was competitive there, Mercedes is now the quickest, but it is quite close between a lot of the cars,” he said at the pre-race press conference on Thursday.
“But then you look at the race pace and you’ve got the Red Bulls are very quick, the Mercedes are very quick, even the Saubers are quick now. It’s just about trying to be consistent and scoring as many points as you can.”
“The target every year is to have consistency and some years it doesn’t go to plan. He said.
“But this year I am fortunate to be on the podium at each of the three races, so it’s fantastic. I definitely think that the last three years have added to where I am today,” he said. “A lot of lessons learned and a lot of great and good experiences.
“We all have to keep our mind in a certain way. It is really a massive mental game, which is why I never gave up in getting on the right path, but I feel there or thereabouts now.”
