F1 Raceweek: Vettel hoping fortune favours Ferrari in 1000th race

The Finn was on course for victory in Shanghai previous year until a virtual safety vehicle handed it to then-Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo, who has yet to score a point this season for Renault, instead. "I won't go into too much detail on this but we don't require exactly the same auto".

Formula1.com reports that Leclerc will be using the same engine that they used in the Bahrain Grand Prix in the upcoming Chinese Grand Prix.

"I hope that we don't have to rely on reliability and we have a much closer race".

Hamilton echoed the comments of his team-mate, saying that Mercedes must look to be better than Ferrari in other areas if they can not compete on speed. It's never one silver bullet or one simple action, but the drag levels we have calculated would have been 0.1s maybe in difference.

"I've thought a lot about it, because I really like Sebastian and he is my friend". "I have been to Bahrain many times, so I think I know my way around".

Many are predicting that the arrival at Ferrari of Charles Leclerc is basically the end of the Vettel era. "It didn't go my way on that Sunday so at that point it wasn't about holding Charles' Sunday back".

"We learned our lessons from Australia and should be in a better place here", Vettel said.

Bernie Ecclestone does not believe five-time World Champion, Lewis Hamilton will join Ferrari from current team Mercedes with the Brit going head to head with the Scuderia for the title this season.

World champion Hamilton says the producers actually wanted him to feature in his own series. They are not tied with one another despite the fact that they have recorded the same results so far this season due to the fact that Bottas recorded the fastest lap time of the Australian Grand Prix and earned one bonus point because of it.

"It's absolutely no different to any other race weekend for me. It's making sure you have all those things ticked off".

"We didn't expect the performance we had at the first race, we didn't expect to see what we saw at the second race".

Bottas said: "It's a track with very long straights and straight-line power, and speed is really important here". With those findings we come here now and see where they take us.

"There are further upgrades to the auto here".

It is not an entirely unsurprising response from the 34-year-old who has always been strong in his ability to blank out distractions, if not perhaps the one Formula One might have been hoping for from their most saleable asset.
