Max Verstappen REFUSES to change after Sebastian Vettel crash

Lewis Hamilton Struggles When Races Are Not Perfect, Nico Rosberg Says

He lost out again on Sunday when he tried to pass Hamilton, who has already spoken of Verstappen's inexperience costing Red Bull precious points.

Vettel, victor of the season's opening two races, finished eighth. Ferrari were quick and Red Bull looked really fast on the long run.

Lewis Hamilton admits his side of the Mercedes Formula 1 garage is now underperforming based on what he called a "disaster" of a Chinese Grand Prix.

Unlike their rivals, Ricciardo and Verstappen dived into the pits to take on fresh rubber, and the gamble worked for Ricciardo as he passed Kimi Raikkonen, Lewis Hamilton, Vettel and finally Bottas for a quite remarkable win.

But the race took a second dramatic twist when the safety auto was deployed following a coming-together between the Toro Rosso pair of Brendon Hartley and Pierre Gasly on lap 31.

"We've been underperforming since... yesterday and today have been a distaster on my side".

"The race was going pretty well for us and we were looking strong all the way, until the guys, during the Safety Car, stopped and we were in trouble then with Daniel and almost with Kimi [Raikkonen] in the end", Bottas said.

On Saturday, former world champion Damon Hill suggested that the performance of Ferrari indicated a shift in the power stakes and Hamilton accepts the era of domination is certainly over.

The forecast is for a warmer race today and that should be better suited to Hamilton's Mercedes vehicle, but the Briton, who will have the Red Bull duo of Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo occupying his mirrors, fears he will be looking over his shoulder rather than hunting down Vettel.

"I don't need to say anything here", Vettel said after his coming-together with Verstappen at turn 14. According to oddsmakers at YouWager, Sebastian Vettel is the current favorite, as he is getting odds of -175 to win.

He was then asked if the incident was proof he needed to calm down and focus on the bigger picture in races, he said: "It's easy to comment that. I was just trying to hold on for whatever I had", Hamilton told Sky Sports F1. "I enjoyed it very much".

Vettel, who put in an error-strewn first attempt, then pulled out just enough through the final corners to deny the 38-year-old what would have been his first pole since last year's Monaco Grand Prix. Max Verstappen led the way ahead of Daniel Ricciardo, who missed a lot of the early running after suffering a dramatic turbo failure in the morning practice session. "We definitely were not doing that for the cameras", said a clearly relieved Ricciardo.

Sergey Sirotkin narrowly missed out on making it into Q2 but managed to out-qualify team-mate Lance Stroll.
