Lewis Hamilton is back to talk after the excellent performance last Sunday, explaining how a victory is possible and how the gap between Mercedes and Red Bull has narrowed. The British driver told: "Victory possible? Thanks to my team.
We came here with updates, we narrowed the gap and we came very close to success. I did everything possible, but they were too quick. Great strategy on the part. ours, great Red Bull race and condolences to their team. They are in pieces, the car was difficult to drive today.
We worked hard as a team and I had great hope when I was in front, but we will continue to push and give everything in the last three races. I'm sure things will turn in our favor."

Hamilton in an interview explained how everyone tries to imitate him.
The Mercedes driver told: "What most people don't know is that I redesigned the steering wheel when I was at McLaren and when I got to Mercedes they did the same. All the other teams copied. All the wheels were circular. Now there is a top and it goes down, but it doesn't join the bottom.
I should have patented it! This is something I'm very proud of: I love working with the ergonomics of the car. I have talked to many amazing athletes. Many have said they retired too early or too late. Most have told me that I will know when it is right to stop.
I always go against the grain. I don't do what everyone expects me to do." Lewis Hamilton, on the badget cap issue, explained: "I am focused on what I can control, I am sure that the FIA ââwill make the right decisions for the integrity of the sport.
Personally I look to the next goals, he said in the press conference only, on the 2021 I have my own opinions and I am proud of what we have done as a team. Even in Ferrari there is a lot of strength and experience. We have a great leader, with great fans and great communication.
Toto Wolff he is a leader capable of 'elevating' people, he leads them to live their private life well. And this pushes the desire to be part of the team to grow. But I hope that we will return to beating Red Bull soon and I hope Ferrari can fight too. But there are also other teams that have shown they have potential."
