Raikkonen at a loss to explain 'lost' pole

Raikkonen at a loss to explain 'lost' pole

Lewis Hamilton's hard start to the 2018 F1 season continued during qualification for the Chinese Grand Prix as he ended up fourth on the grid. "I think if we do our homework, if we get the vehicle balance right and we get everything together, then it should be a good weekend - I don't see why not".

A forlorn Hamilton added: "The vehicle felt OK but I don't really have the answer for it".

The four-time world champion has always professed his love for F1's most famous team - Ferrari - and if they are on course to return to the top of the sport and with Vettel's teammate Kimi Raikkonen out of contract at the end of the season, there could be possibility of the British driver making the switch over to the Maranello based team. In terms of speed, it is all good but somehow - I don't know why - in the races... maybe wanting a bit too much, trying to recover from what went before.

Hamilton cut a frustrated figure all weekend, complaining of a lack of pace in his Mercedes, and had to settle for fourth-place finish after starting from the same position.

"The race was going pretty well for us and we were looking strong all the way, until the guys, during the Safety Car, stopped and we were in trouble then with Daniel and almost with Kimi [Raikkonen] in the end", Bottas said. I had no pace.

"It's not going to be easy to beat Kimi and Sebastian tomorrow, they're the quickest on the straights too, so overtaking will be tough", said the Briton.

"I still believe we are the best team with the potential to win races and fight for this world championship".

Buffon: "The referee has a rubbish bin where his heart should be"
For Chiellini , the decision [to award a penalty] was laughable but the centre-back lauded his team's effort. If Buffon does not play in European competition again, UEFA can not sanction him for his remarks.

"The amusing bit of being outperformed on Saturday is that you are the lion that's just waiting to jump on the prey", commented Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff.

"That would not be the right mindset", he said. The vehicle doesn't feel much different so I think they have just turned it up. "The amusing thing about being outperformed on Saturday is that you are the lion that is just waiting to jump on its prey".

Red Bull were content with locking out the third row of the grid, especially as Ricciardo was within two minutes of sitting out the entirety of qualifying following an engine blow-out in Practice Three that forced his crew into a two-hour race against time which they ultimately won with just seconds to spare.

"I didn't see him until very late so I left a bit of room as well. We definitely were not doing that for the cameras", said a clearly relieved Ricciardo. "I had no major drop-off in the end, so I think we could have done it - but this is racing, these things happen". "That will be fun".

Vettel, who holds a 17-point lead over Mercedes rival Lewis Hamilton after winning in Australia and Bahrain, is looking good for a hat-trick. I think he can do the same today.

"I wouldn't be surprised if tomorrow that gap disappears and it's a very tight race".
