Lewis Hamilton We are shocked at the speed the Ferrari
Pilot Mercedes Lewis Hamilton admitted that he was impressed by the speed of the Scuderia in Sepang.Lewis Hamilton "I didn't start to race with thoughts about what Vettel will start last, so I will have an easy victory. The team in the simulator showed me that he will be able to easily finish fourth or fifth. So for me no surprise his finishing position.We are shocked by the fact that the speed of the Scuderia has increased by about 0.8-1.0 seconds off lap times. Before the gap was 0.1 or 0.2 seconds.It is obvious that Kimi would easily win this race, I could only be third. So I have to be pleased with the result. Even if I could defend against the attack Verstappen, he's still ahead of me. We lag behind Red Bull for 0.5 seconds with a circle, sometimes even 0.8 seconds.This really is due to some problems we have with the machine, and which we do not understand".
