Pained Bottas says Mercedes team orders made sense

Pained Bottas says Mercedes team orders made sense

Dejected Lewis Hamilton said he does not exist to finish second after a some mistakes in Bahrain allowed Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel to get ahead in this year's championship fight.

But he said he was not sure whether that it cost him victory in a race that he lost by 6.6 seconds and in which Vettel said he was measuring his pace once he was in front. He should have been much closer to the Ferrari driver but for a rare moment of gamesmanship.

Hamilton, who will be replaced by his Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas for the concluding day of the in-season test on Wednesday, finished more than half a second clear of Ferrari test driver Antonio Giovinazzi, with Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo third.

That saw Vettel in the lead, with Bottas and Hamilton behind, and Vettel pulled away, further helped down the line by Hamilton's penalty.

At the start Vettel jumped into second place, with Hamilton slipping down to a third. You are supposed to have a five-second gap and I think I had a four-second gap.

Though the BJP leaders are unwilling to react on the matter except for a few, the Opposition and the Muslims are elated. Though he refused to comment on the SC ruling, he defended Uma Bharati, another accused in the Ayodhya demolition case.

"Sebastian was in my blind spot so I didn't know where he was", Hamilton said.

"Apologies to the team, but I tried my best to recover it".

"When you have a strong fight it is a great feeling so I felt good on the podium after the race". Finishing fourth in the chaos, was Ferrari's Finn Raikkonen, who was another target to team strategy.

'We don't like that, at all, ' team boss Toto Wolff told reporters after Bottas twice obeyed radio instructions to let the faster Hamilton through to chase eventual victor and championship leader Vettel. Vettel was braver on the brakes and passed Hamilton around the outside.

Bottas kept the lead for the opening laps, with Vettel getting ahead of Hamilton into the first corner for second and then taking over after the pitstops.

The safety auto appeared on track after 18-year-old Canadian newcomer Lance Stroll, suffering his third retirement in three races, turned into Toro Rosso's Carlos Sainz as the Spaniard left the pits.

But neither could match Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel who drove flawlessly to take his second victory of the season.

"I know that gap that was there doesn't just come from driving".

"That first stint was looking really competitive". I am really enjoying the auto.

"We don't like it at all", Wolff said when questioned. I was looking after my tyres, so we were in a really good position. "They were hiding some eggs but it looks as though we found them today".

On the day the trial was scheduled to start in July, Broner showed up late to the court and was hung over, according to the judge. All charges, with the exception of the battery charge from Florida, came from Hamilton County.

27-year-old Bottas struggled during his first stint after a generator problem on the grid meant that the Mercedes mechanics could not bleed the car's tyres to the right air pressure, leaving Bottas with an unbalanced set-up that affected the levels of grip he had until his first pit stop.
