Hamilton: Vettel can forget about title amble

Published

on

Lewis Hamilton does not believe that Red Bull and Sebastian Vettel early attacks will run away to fourth consecutive title in this season.

Sebastian Vettel set two top podiums for this season from four rounds, now the triple time world champion holds a ten point gain over Lotus’s Kimi Raikkonen and a 27 point lead over Lewis Hamilton.

“Seb[Vettel] always seems to win in Bahrain, so that was no real surprise for us. Lewis was quoted by the TheSun.

“I don’t think it will be the same for Seb[Vettel] in all the races plus Red Bull have seemed to struggle in some qualifying sessions.

“The Bahrain GP could turn out to be one of the worst grands prix for us because we had a lot of problems with the car.

“We were on the back foot all weekend, so to come away with a fifth place when I started in ninth, was really pleasing.

“I turned a negative into a positive and now had two thirds and two fifths. When I was joining a new team, I thought it would be a lot worse than that.”

The Brit also admire with his former team Principle Martin Whitmarsh’s dealing of the McLaren duo battle in last race at Bahrain.

“They had a good battle. That’s the good thing about Martin, he allows his drivers to race. That’s what he has always done from the time that I was there. He doesn’t change in that respect. Lewis added.

“As long as we are all racing together, effectively and with respect for one another, it’s not a concern for me. We’re there to race, we just have to remember what is best for our teams and take care that we don’t take each other out.”
