Lewis Hamilton believes that as many as six competitors could potentially be in the frame to win the driver's championship in the 2019 F1 season, saying that the drivers at Red Bull must be considered contenders alongside Mercedes and Ferrari. Very rarely you get races where the vehicle is absolutely fine and you have nothing to complain about.
Meanwhile, elsewhere in the paddock, asked if the mistakes suggests that he has the psychological edge over the German, Hamilton said: "I don't go into a battle with him and feel that I've got one up on him, or anything like that".
While the 2019 season is still in its opening stages, Bottas has been the only driver to lead the driver standings at any point through the season's first two races.
Ricciardo has moved on to Renault, but Max Verstappen was third in the season-opener in Australia and fourth in Bahrain two weeks ago.
"I wasn't happy with my performance (in Bahrain), not happy with the feeling yet with the vehicle, the feeling that I had prior to the season in testing", said Vettel.
Pierre Gasly could lose his seat with the Red Bull Formula 1 team during the 2019 season.That is the warning of outspoken 1997 Formula 1 world champion Jacques Villeneuve, when asked about a hard.
"Vettel's spin in the race in Bahrain was amateur", Palmer wrote in a column for the BBC. "But as I said, the test after Bahrain gave me and gave us the chance to try some things and I think with those findings we come here now and see where they take us". "I didn't know he said anything nice, but it's nice to hear".
"We will keep pushing to extract the maximum performance from our package to deliver the best race we can".
"I think the (Bahrain) test was very helpful and useful to get some laps in the vehicle and I think we learned some things about the auto, vehicle behavior that maybe we couldn't in Barcelona because we were looking at other things". "We're going to maximise our gains through the corners", he added.
"So I think that proved very useful, at least that's the feeling we have now so let's see how it turns out overall". "You need to find your way out of that phase, and Sebastian is a four-time world champion so I am sure he will be able to manage that", he said. I was more confident with the balance I had in Bahrain than he was.
We want to know who you think is going to win this weekend. "But I also know and understand that people's judgement don't go further than a week, forwards or backwards, so it [the criticism] is a part of life".
