When the media asked about his decision to ignore his engineer’s suggestion during the race which was to ease back to 2.5 seconds off Nico Rosberg and save tyres for an attack late in the race and instead attack and ultimately pass the German, Lewis Hamilton: “I have a great team of people who work with me, who give me advice and guide me.

“It’s advice, not you have to do this. They give me a bit of information and take that and decide how to use that. I felt I had the pace at the time so I felt I had to use it now, I was certain it might not come again. I knew that was the best time to put pressure on him. I did it a couple of races ago and he doesn’t seem to like it, so I’ll try it a bit more.

“We’ve got a long way to go, but one step at a time. The support I’ve had from the fans and family has been incredible. I’m going to take that energy and try and move forwards. I’m just going to take it as it comes. Today I still had a problem. I’m still looking for that weekend where you don’t have any problems.”
