Lewis Hamilton: "Happy Now That I've Cooled Down"

Max Verstappen Lewis Hamilton Bahrain Grand Prix

"It's interesting to hear from Christian [Horner] because they have got a auto that should be getting good results and through these kind of..."

Matters were complicated by Mercedes assuming that Vettel would stop a second time before coming to realise that he might not, and also by problems with Hamilton's microphone, which meant that the pitwall could not always hear what he was saying. It was tactical perfection - and it didn't last. There was confusion over the radio as a peeved Hamilton claimed he was "driving to target" times in a bid to catch Vettel, but he finished six seconds off the pace in the third. An opportunity missed for Mercedes after a well-executed race. I am 17 points down already after just two races. It's why they've brought in the halo, and a raft of other changes since Jules Bianchi passed away three years ago. Ferrari have been slapped with a £43,500 fine.

Sunday brought a similar type of incident in the pits - one that had dire consequences. And - dare we say it - does it look like we have an exciting year of F1 ahead of us? An example needs to be made.

Verstappen, surprisingly, has not hit back.

Verstappen and Hamilton clashed on the second lap in Bahrain when the Red Bull passed the Mercedes but clipped the W09 in the process, puncturing his rear-left tyre.

However, it was an even worse outing for Australian hopeful Daniel Ricciardo, who pulled up early in the race after losing all power, leading to another frustrating retirement.

"I don't think it's justified to give us these kind of shit questions and making up a story out of nothing".

However, the Dutchman - who managed to reel in much of the field with a blistering start launch from the eighth row - was perhaps was lucky to get on the track having experienced a similar issue to his teammate.

On Sunday, Verstappen refused to give Hamilton room, and Hamilton refused to yield. Mercedes F1 boss Toto Wolff defended his driver though by reasoning out that it was only a racing incident. "I can't afford to lose any more points to Sebastian".

Perhaps it was just McLaren after all.

"Is that correct? And more importantly, is there an opinion you have on the contact you had with Max in the beginning stages of the race?" In Bahrain he crashed in qualifying which forced him to start from 15th on the grid, before the early exit.

But he is going through a hard start of the season, finishing sixth at the opener in Australia race after a series of mistakes.
