Lewis Hamilton believes he can beat Sebastian Vettel to world title

Mar 31, 2017, 01:50

Vettel, who now has 43 race wins compared to Hamilton's 53, agrees.

"Today [Sunday] felt very exceptional - especially after the difficult 2016 season, and a hard winter when a lot of heart and soul from all of us going into this vehicle".

Hamilton, who went into the race on his fourth successive pole in Melbourne, got away safely and avoided trouble into the notorious right hander out of the home straight.

And the folks at Red Bull Racing?

"It's good to hit some lows and go through hard periods even though it pretty much sucks", said Vettel as he reflected on the turmoil of last season. Even if it's disappointing I'm pretty happy we understood quite a lot of things over the weekend.

Could the 2017 Australian Grand Prix be the changing of the guard in F1?

Ferrari looked threatening in the preseason testing in Spain, and after qualifying in Melbourne, Sebastian Vettel was able to split the Ferraris on the grid.

This pattern would have the "neckline" for Tesla shares at $260, a price that has been supporting as well as acted as resistance. The current share price indicate that stock is -1.93% away from its one year high and is moving 49.44% ahead of its 52-week low.

Hamilton and Vettel have won seven of the last nine drivers' titles between them, though have yet to go head-to-head for the world championship.

"If any Aussies have a bit of energy left in a few weeks, then come out to China and you'll hopefully see a better race from me". "It was a good race for the team, we won the first race, so we have a lot of good things and a foundation to build from". When he exited the pits just ahead of Verstappen and Hamilton, everybody watching realized Ferrari means business this year. "I know it's been a long time coming for them to get a result like this".

Vettel said- "We say this all the time, what this team has done in the last six months has been really tough".

"For sure I would love to have a close battle", said Vettel.

Fact is, based on the evidence thus far, it is going to be a very, very hard slog for the pit crew and tacticians, for yesterday proved time and time again that much of the racing is going to mean endless frustration as drivers are forced to remain around 2s down on their rivals unable to get any closer due to the dirty air from the auto in front.

"We were always sceptical about whether it was good enough and we always tried to see the negatives in everything we did, and look at the worst-case scenario".

Hamilton defended Mercedes' decision to bring him in for a pit stop earlier than Vettel.
