Ferrari's Win In F1 Australian GP Paints Clear Picture Of 2017 Championship

10 April 2017

"I wish we could race a lot closer in the cars that we have today, but still I think the fact that we are similar pace-wise, it's going to be a very, very hard slog this season".

Mercedes, despite failing to take the top prize in the recently concluded Australian Grand Prix, made a clear statement of what the team is aiming for the rest of the season.

"If there's any questions or I'm missing information there's immediately a person who will help and support me and that makes a big difference to step up to this team".

Scuderia Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel started the race in Melbourne, Australia, from P2, but by the time the checkered flag came out, he was in first-place with a 9.975 second gap to Lewis Hamilton in second.

"It feels that people judge off things they see and if you go to previous years I arrived at the first race just as fit, I was on pole position for the last four years here". It was only a matter of time for him to win a championship, which I tried to stop him in Brazil as hard as I could in my Toro Rosso! Can you have the motivation to do it yourself and get yourself ready and turn up?

Vettel: "To cut it short, great respect".

But you can't be blind to the fact that there are families involved, there are people involved, and they need some information. The vote to move comes after Oakland officials and Raiders fans fought to keep the team in the Bay Area.

"Four titles and an incredible surge into Formula One and he continues to be a force and will continue to be for many years to come".

Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff admitted to being "surprised" by Ferrari's pace, as Lewis Hamilton finished second and Valtteri Bottas was third in his debut for the German manufacturer. "He has proved to be be one of the quickest drivers on the grid and l would love to have a close battle". Hamilton and Vettel looked pretty evenly matched for most of it, and though there wasn't much overtaking, there often isn't at Melbourne, so we'll reserve judgment on that one.

"I haven't had many races up against Sebastian but we've always had a respectful relationship", he said.

"Obviously it would be great to have Fernando [Alonso] up there, but it doesn't look like that's going to happen anytime soon".

"It's going to be physically and mentally demanding but as Sebastian said, racing the best is what Formula 1 is all about and ultimately makes you work that much harder - having to raise the bar - and I'm looking forward to that".
