“He seems to only make comments about me for some reason,” said Hamilton when asked for his feelings on Ecclestone’s comments. It makes me a bit nervous because we have quite a good relationship and I’m quite open with him about a lot of stuff.

“I don’t really know what to say about the comments he made. I think he said something about me talking to Red Bull? I said to my management team to speak to all the teams and give me what the best options were.

“There was no particular one that I was pushing for more. At the end of the day I am here [Mercedes] and it’s the best decision I have ever made.”
