Lewis Hamilton: "I'm just grateful to have ended up in P7"

Lewis Hamilton:

Vettel resumed ahead of his colleague and was able to control proceedings and take the chequered flag, opening up a 25-point lead over Hamilton in the drivers' championship.

Polesitter Raikkonen led Sunday's race until the pit stop phase when the Finn pitted in response to the early-stopping Max Verstappen and Valtteri Bottas, while Ferrari opted to leave Vettel out.

Vettel was quick to play down claims he is being favoured by the Scuderia bosses, but Hamilton said: "It's clear to me that Ferrari have chosen their number one driver". "It's very hard for the leading vehicle (Raikkonen) to get jumped by the second auto (Vettel) unless the team decides to favor the other vehicle (Vettel)".

Valtteri Bottas was fourth and as we already said, Hamilton finished in the 7th place.

In what turned out to be a hard weekend for Mercedes, Valtteri Bottas' fourth place finish was the best the reigning world champions could manage, as Hamilton recovered from 13th on the grid to cross the line seventh, following his early qualifying exit. I don't now feel that we have to favour one over the other.

"Ferrari seems to work everywhere, so these next 14 races will be very very hard", he said. It might be the other way. "Congratulations from our side - we need to give them credit". That Hamilton even managed to take seventh place was a credit to his remarkable driving ability, seeing as he started from way back in 13th place on the grid after a calamitous qualifying session in Monaco. "We must make sure we keep the momentum up in the next couple of races".

"I'm a driver, I can do whatever I want, I can stop the auto if I want to, but we work as a team and if you don't believe in how they work then it's very complicated", he said.

"The rule is pretty clear when you qualify ahead and you are ahead in the first stint, you get priority on the first stop and that's what happened". There is no point worrying about it.

"It's obvious that I can not afford another weekend like this".

"It was what we calculated as the optimum result without any incidents and this is where he came in", said team boss Toto Wolff, who conceded that their auto simply wasn't fast enough this weekend.

"That inconsistency has been following us through the season, and on the opposite side Ferrari put the auto on track in Barcelona and they were quick from the get-go", said Wolff. "We know that the Ferraris are not bulletproof, they've got things potentially coming up - all the [engine components] they've used or potentially used, so we'll see".

"But we still believe we can win this thing. It is one of those races when you hope to get more". "I only know that we came second".

"We still came away from here with some points". I would feel exactly the same, 100 percent the same.
