Lewis Hamilton's Mercedes team fear repeat of their Monaco nightmare

Lewis Hamilton's Mercedes team fear repeat of their Monaco nightmare

The Finn, Mercedes team mate to four-times world champion Lewis Hamilton, would have been a victor in Azerbaijan last month but for suffering a puncture three laps from the end while leading.

The rest of the race kept going without incident and that meant Hamilton would cruise to his 63 career victory with team mate Valtteri Bottas a fair way back in second. "I think Red Bull will really be strong and Ferrari was on the pole past year".

The defending Formula One world champion was at his imperious best as he won by 20 seconds from Valtteri Bottas in a welcome one-two for Mercedes.

"So it's a good feeling". Half the job was done in qualifying when Hamilton scored his second pole of the year at a circuit that historically rewards front-row starters.

"We've had all the bosses here and there is not a single person in the team or at least the hierarchy of the team that has any concerns, as far as I am aware", he said.

Despite their lack of pace in Spain, where not only were they not able to extract the same speed from their tyres as Mercedes but were also unable to coax them to last as long as the silver cars, the Italian team have had the most versatile vehicle so far this season. He has some serious records.

"That was a great result but there was no point where it felt as comfortable as it might have looked from outside", Mercedes chief Toto Wolff said. "The others are going to be hard to beat", he said. "But I have the will to want to get this one and do it right, flawless weekend in, weekend out". "I would like to hope it could be part of the turning point". The team's grid position helped them get a quick getaway from the start, pulling ahead of the Red Bulls and the Ferraris right from the launch. Carlos Sainz (Renault) and Fernando Alonso (McLaren) secured seventh and eighth places respectively. But the German marque struggled a year ago in Monaco, with Ferrari sweeping to a one-two finish.

Charles Leclerc of Sauber and Sergio Perez of Force India closed out the top 10. The only glitch for Mercedes was when Sebastian Vettel managed to slipstream past Bottas for second place into turn 1. The more confident I am the better the pace is. He lost time in the pits and came back onto the track behind Verstappen, and was unable to make up the difference despite the newer tyres. 'There's a nice story and a nice harmony there, but when I was told, being a relatively new Brit, that the weather is sub-optimal in April, they warded me off that quickly.' The honour of the 1,000th race will fall to the desperately soulless Shanghai International Circuit in China instead.

"I never believed we can do a one-stop", he said.

Anyone who has a recalled carton is being urged to throw the eggs away or return them to the store they were bought in. Although it can be much more serious to deadly for young children, the elderly and those with weakened immune systems.
