Hamilton relished opportunity to race Verstappen

  • Hamilton 8.9 Verstappen 9.9 and Vettel 5 How do the drivers rate their seasons

Vettel, the highest-placed Ferrari driver, is 94 points behind Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton in the championship and fourth overall.

"There really is no better feeling from a racing driver's point of view - when you have a race like this and face a really strong competitor and a great driver like Max", explained Hamilton who came through to win the race.

"The times from the third sector, where you need maximum downforce, speak volumes, as the auto was so far off the pace of the Mercedes and Red Bulls".

On Sunday, the battle was between Mercedes and Red Bull, with Vettel finishing more than a minute behind Hamilton, who celebrated his eighth win in 12.

Vestappen cleanly defended an attack from Hamilton at one point, with the two drivers avoiding contact as they went wheel-to-wheel as they jousted for the lead. "And as we get more performance on the auto as Honda continues to make progress, this is very much a building year as we transition into 2020".

"So in this break, I am fully focused on real recovery, which is a bit of a change from my normal break".

"All of a sudden we've had this big step up from the Red Bulls and now we've got a really good battle on our hands", said Hamilton. "Those places I think they will be really strong". I gave him space and more but that's really just from a mindset that we are fighting slightly differently.

"But there was no need for that, and it was really just making sure that when you finally pull off an overtaking manoeuvre it's a clean, full sweep by".

At the start of the season, Bottas flew out of the blocks and won the Australian Grand Prix.

"But I think as the team have gained more understanding and have been able to use these new regulations better, we have been able to recover balance and characteristics of the vehicle".

"I think Ferrari will come back into play at some of these races like Spa and Monza".

"I think in the past I've gone into this break and I was 100% fit and I could go and party for multiple days and then go into the recovery and stuff", he said. They will be quick on the straights and there's not a lot of corners.

"The Red Bull auto was not as quick as Ferrari or Mercedes in the early races, yet Verstappen was constantly in podium contention".

"Two front rows and a pole position since Austria in late June prove the Dutchman now has qualifying sorted as well, and I expect the Verstappen/Hamilton rivalry seen in Hungary to be a regular feature in the second half of the season". Red Bull as I say has been doing great, I hope their performance continues, and I really, really hope we have more battles like today.
