Lewis Hamilton to hold crisis talks with Mercedes team


So are Ferrari the real favourites? I mean, I don't know what Lewis did.

"Do you think, if you compare it to football, if you have a microphone on a footballer's mouth that everything he says is something nice, and it's a nice message when the guy tackles him and sometimes he fouls him?" the Bahrain GP victor added. The Red Bull driver came out with a fresh set of supersoft tires, but then pulled up a lap later to make it a miserable evening for the Austrian team, who had already lost Ricciardo's vehicle to a technical fault. It's a human reaction.

Verstappen retired from the race due to damage done to his vehicle while passing Hamilton on the inside at Turn 1 on the second lap, the world champion later accusing him of showing a lack of respect.

Later in the press conference though, the German would take over a question posed by a Dutch reporter asking Hamilton directly about the term he used.

"There needs to be a certain respect between drivers", Hamilton was quoted as saying on Sky Sports F1.

'Sometimes I feel it's all a bit blown up and artificial if we have these questions, trying to make a story out of nothing.

"It was a silly move for him because he didn't finish the race and obviously he's tending to make quite a few mistakes recently".

Social media users slammed President Donald Trump for bragging about the sturdiness of Trump Tower in an utterly tone-deaf tweet . New York City in 1999 became last big city in the nation to require sprinklers, according to the New York Daily News .

Verstappen's team boss Christian Horner insisted that it was was an incident behind two hard racers, and that's what TV viewers wanted to see.

"And I've got to save tyres so that when we're at the end and [Vettel] catches me I can still fight".

"I was really close behind and there was a chance to overtake, so I thought it was a good opportunity".

Lewis Hamilton is already thinking about the Formula 1 Drivers' world championship despite the 2018 season being just two races old. As the Finn pulled away, he ran over Francesco Cigarini, who was out of his field of vision, leaving him with a broken tibia and fibula in his left leg. Cigarini was rushed to hospital, where he underwent a successful operation, while Raikkonen retired from the race.

Sebastian Vettel: "Can I answer that question?".

"I think there was still enough space on the left, but he drove into my left rear, gave me a puncture and also destroyed the "diff". I went through that stuff when I was a young guy.

"At the moment he said that, he was still full of adrenaline", Verstappen, 20, told Het Laaste Nieuws.
