Mercedes facing a genuine threat says Hamilton

Defending world champion Lewis Hamilton believes that the threat posed by Red Bull and Ferrari in Friday practice for the Singapore GP is genuine heading into the rest of the weekend.

Hamilton was fourth quickest in a practice session behind the pace setter Daniil Kvyat, Kimi Raikkonen and Daniel Ricciardo, which didn’t feature a Mercedes-powered car in the top three for the first time this season.

“The other guys are fast,” Hamilton said.

“No problems at all, they are just fast. This is always a race where people are closer and the gap is always closer. They are even closer this weekend and potentially even ahead.

“Definitely we have a genuine challenge from these guys. I’m looking forward to seeing what happens, it’s going to be interesting that’s for sure.” The Brit added

“It looks like that could be the case. Ferrari are very fast or equally as fast and Red Bull are quite competitive looking at the times. We will still be fighting.

“We are just doing what we are doing and not targeting anything specifically here. We are just pushing as hard as we can to be as fast as we can. The others are looking quite quick but tomorrow is another day.”
