Where has the ‘another level’ been lately?

Did Mr Hamilton really get head messed after the show of strategy fail in Australia?

Does he need Ms Scherzinger around again?

He's had some off times. I've no doubt at all he'll beat Bottas over a season. And I believe the Ferrari challenge will fall apart as the season goes on (similar to last season). I'm not a Lewis fan, but I'm not seeing an issue just yet. Long season and they've come back before.

I am quite sure that the Mercedes superiority will miraculously reappear once the new engine rules have been set, and they will have foxed the rest of the field into giving them another 5 years of absolute domination.

Last year we saw Hamilton start in the pit lane in Brazil and finish third 20 seconds off the winner Vettel. I think only the Mercedes mapping has changed for the first few races and service will be resumed.

I’m more optimistic about the fact that Merc era is over and we’re starting to have more teams challenging at the top now

Let’s hope race control rig some more races to make up for it.

Hamilton didn't look too happy on the podium. Was he truly feeling sorry for Bottas? He is definitely is feeling the pressure from Ferrari and Bottas. The whole race he was voicing issues with the car. He didn't have it altogether during practise nor qualifying. It was evident in the race that he wasn't on top of things. So yeah, I can read pressure all over his face because he has his work cut out for him.

Plus he was well aware he was at best looking at a 3rd place at one stage, and to be brutally frank, fluked the win. He did not win it by any stroke of genius driving as he has done at times. To go six races without a win (I think Austin was his last win?) and then get one the way he did is hardly a 'wow didnt I do good' situation.

I think he is now coming to the realisation that Bottas has his measure at this point.

Hamilton said the following after the race.

Quote:

Lewis Hamilton: “Valtteri did such an exceptional job and deserved to have the win, Sebastian did a great job.

“It was very fortunate today. It feels odd to be up here but I’ve got to take it. I didn’t give up, I kept pushing.

“To come out with a win, I feel incredibly grateful. You have to take the ups with the downs. I can’t complain that I won.

“Valtteri was unfortunate. I wouldn’t have got by him at the end. Straight away when I got out the car, I went back to see Valtteri to congratulate him on a great job, which is why I was late to the podium.”

What an idiot! Why didn't he just run up to the podium, jump up in the air and put his right index finger up like some others do when they get a "lucky win"?? Silly boy for thinking he was just fortunate to win. A win is a win and should be celebrated just like any other win, right?
