Reigning world champion Lewis Hamilton says that “funny” to hear Red Bull calling for policy changes to restriction in Mercedes.

The 2010-2013 world championship-winning team is furious with its start to the new season, as engine partner Renault struggles and Mercedes extends its dominance.

Following Mercedes top podium finish at opening Australian GP, Red Bull’s team principal, Christian Horner, maintaining a straight face throughout, has asked the FIA to step in and save the Formula 1 season by making equalise the engine performance.

“I find it quite funny and interesting that the opinion is coming from individuals who have had so much success. Bearing in mind it has only been one race, so to already have comments like this is what I find funny. Hamilton told reporters at Sepang on Thursday

“It was a big step for me to come to this team that had so many years of poor performance. They hadn’t had the success of other teams and not once did this team complain to others in order to equalise things, they just worked their arses off.

“Joining that team and making that progress, now we are the best team, we have pulled together and done an amazing job. It is not just me here, there are 1000 people back at the two factories who are working day and night to build the best car and we have done that with the same rules and resources as the other teams have had. I am very proud of that.”
