Hamilton: I can't rely on 'weird' races to win

Hamilton: I can't rely on 'weird' races to win

Hamilton leads Sebastian Vettel by four points after riding his luck to take victory in a chaotic Azerbaijan Grand Prix last time out.

"You have got two of the longest straights, but maybe when you drive it will be fun", Hamilton said.

Aitken, who now competes in Formula 2 with ART Grand Prix, has already sampled Renault's 2012 E20 during demo runs, but will get his first experience in a new-spec machine.

Hamilton is hopeful Mercedes can unlock some more pace in Barcelona, a track where teams traditionally introduce a host of updates to their cars.

"If this weekend, we happen to have got on top of the issues we have with the vehicle and we start to be more consistent, then I can be a lot happier because I know then I can punch either at my weight or a little bit above my weight".

Ferrari, on the other hand, have seemingly encountered few difficulties dialling in their 2018 vehicle and Vettel was this week identified as the championship favourite by Sky F1 pundit Damon Hill.

Getting off to a quick start in Barcelona will be crucial on Sunday, as the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya historically doesn't allow for many overtaking opportunities. "We have been very competitive and have had a chance to fight for the win in most of the races".

Hamilton has pinpointed understanding the new-for-2018 Pirelli tyres as potentially holding the key to his championship aspirations.

Miami commissioner Ken Russell, whose waterfront District 1 includes the proposed circuit layout, was not one of those invited to sponsor the resolution but has indicated he will support the project.

NFL Legend Kurt Warner Considered Football Comeback At Age 47
He is 47 years old and has been retired for eight years, but that wasn't stopping him from thinking about the comeback. I think I can give you one year if you need that.

"It's like a moving target which we are struggling to steady".

"We recognise that this is only the start of the process and we will immediately get to work with the various community stakeholders, the City of Miami, the Port of Miami, Bayfront Park Management Trust and others, in order to reach a final agreement".

Mercedes are bringing new auto upgrades this weekend, although that will be true of most if not all the teams this weekend following F1's return to Europe.

"Obviously one of the circuits we know best, since we are doing a lot of testing preseason in the winter on this track", Vettel said. Mercedes 110 3. Red Bull 55 4. The longest gap between two wins in F1 history is 99, set by Riccardo Patrese.

He said: "There are so many races to go that it's pointless to talk about the fight for the championship".

Overtaking is hard in Barcelona and more so in Monte Carlo, making track position Key for a good race result.

"It's pretty straightforward for a long time".

But Mercedes trail Ferrari by the same margin in the Constructors' Championship following the opening 4 races, with the Scuderia appearing to possess the all-round fastest vehicle early in 2018. Watch the Spanish GP exclusively live on Sky Sports F1 from May 11-13.
