Hamilton: Advantage - not an occasion to relax


After a summer break Lewis Hamilton is in the lead in personal offset with comfortable advantage, but considers that the situation can change. At a traditional meeting with journalists he spoke about prospects of team in the next races...

Question: Last year you have arrived to Belgium, conceding to the leader of the championship, but then to you wasn't equal. Now you ahead of Vettel, but have won two previous races despite the fact that Ferrari cars were quicker. Did you use this summer break as productively how last year and are aimed at success in the next races?

Lewis Hamilton: When you go to a summer break, every time a situation different: everything depends on that, you behind or ahead, the car, good at you, or not. Frankly speaking, after the last race I was completely disconnected from the Formula 1 and thought of a season not so much. Of course, I have continued to train, trying as it is possible to be prepared better for the remained races

Before a summer break I knew that the team has perfectly performed the work. Perhaps, we not in everything were the best, but have scored many points. We know in what we have to add. We already have something, some decisions even in development - time will be required to see results. It is impossible just to prepare the new motor by tomorrow - on it several weeks, and even are necessary months.

We don't know that waits for us in the second half of a season, and in this plan the situation doesn't differ from last year. But I can precisely tell that if a year ago we were strong on this or that route, it doesn't mean what now will be also. Everything can pass well or badly. In my opinion, last year there were many positive moments, and ahead there is a lot more good.

Question: Mercedes cars were always competitive in Spa and Monza. What do you wait from two next races for?

Lewis Hamilton: I don't think that these routes best of all suit our car, but also serious problems shouldn't be. I don't consider that it is the best for us routes, unlike some other, for example, from Silverstone. all saw

last year how dense fight we conducted with Ferrari on these routes. This year they have achieved progress in motor power - starting with Gran Pri of Austria their engines worked fantastically. And in Spa and Monza motor power is important too. I don't know how events will develop in this week-end, but all of us equally not so much each other concede in speed.

of Spa - the excellent route, and here is healthy. It seems to me, this year in Pouhon it will be possible to pass at a full speed. It is tremendous.

Question: What of the remained routes best of all suits Mercedes? Where will you be favourites? Or Ferrari now the favourite on all routes?

Lewis Hamilton: Frankly speaking, I should think in what races they were quicker us. I know that ahead of Spa, Monza and... Abu Dhabi. (laughs) In the next and more long-term future there are routes which resemble to us or him better. But ahead there are a lot of races. I didn't look in the calendar and didn't estimate where have to be силь
