Lewis Hamilton - Red Bull Have Obviously Improved Somewhere

Lewis Hamilton had a frustrating F1 weekend at the Austrian GP, starting eight due to a grid penalty that saw him pushed back five grid spaces and during the race had almost gotten into the first three but couldn't due to Red Bull's pace which he termed "Fantastic".

"Daniel's pace was fantastic today," Hamilton said. "For whatever reason they were very, very fast in the race. They've obviously improved somewhere.

"I was giving it hell and wasn't closing massively on him. It was only down to a mistake of his at the end that he really opened up the window [for an overtake]. I think that's good, those kind of things are good to see because I guess it shows where opportunities can be once you've put pressure on someone for a period of time.

"But if they can pull that out in qualifying, I think that's going to be great for the rest of the season. We've got a third team that are going to be battling it out with us."

"I just had to sit and watch the replay with Daniel to see just how far alongside [I got] and, if I had just been a little bit more aggressive, whether or not I would have been ahead but he defended the position really well and I don't think I could have done better. At the time and when I finished the race I was thinking maybe I could have, but he was in my blind spot so I didn't know.

"So naturally when I was doing the interviews that was what I was disappointed in. I worked so hard to close that gap and get into that window, he made a mistake which enable me to be there and to drive all those laps so well and then still come out with the same place that I was in is definitely difficult."
