Car issues delayed Hamilton contract talks, says Wolff

Major concerns Toto Wolff admits Mercedes are worried

"We are not far from finalising things".

Lewis back on top... but for how much longer?

Shovlin added that Bottas losing a place to Vettel at the start did not help Mercedes' cause, with the Barcelona circuit notorious for its limited overtaking opportunities.

"I am going to sleep like a baby tonight because I know I did my job this weekend to the maximum and I did not leave anything on the table". He took the pole position for the race and paced the entire field, including his teammate Valtteri Bottas, who finished more 20 seconds to the rear of him. Yet Hamilton's win came with a degree of caution.

Mercedes have recently struggled on the street circuit in Monte Carlo and Hamilton predicts that Red Bull will provide strong competition in the principality. While it was Ferrari dominating Q1 and Q2, the team bagged pole where it mattered the most which was in Q3.


"Apparently, the changes that were made did us more harm than it did our opponents", Ferrari's Vettel said. Despite winning in Spain after one victory in the opening four grands prix past year, it did not turn out to be the race that kick-started his season. 'The bottom line is that we were not quick enough, ' a rather glum Vettel conceded.

If Mercedes' dominance was more like what Formula One fans have gotten used to seeing from the Silver Arrows, then Hamilton's display on Sunday was also right up there with the best the Briton has produced on his way to four world championships. The Finn, however, has responded strongly to that reproval. The drivers and teams know the track too well, and the layout of the track with those long-radius medium- and high-speed corners means that it's hard to follow another auto. He then delivered a decent showing to finish second on Sunday. They are Lewis, Valtteri and the Mercedes young drivers.

Ricciardo is out of contract with Red Bull at the end of the season, but Wolff has indicated that the team are happy with their current driving pair. The drivers scrambled all over the turn hoping not to hit Grosjean but Nico Hulkenburg and Pierre Gasley were collected in the mess. He has zero points in 2018. Kevin Magnussen in the Haas finished in P6 behind Ricciardo.

Hamilton was expected to put pen to paper on a new deal at the start of the season, but as of the fifth round of the championship nothing has been announced. Silverstone hosted the first grand prix back in 1950, and F1 felt it would be fitting for the Northamptonshire airfield to host next year's landmark race, too, meaning the event would move from its July slot to April.

"We definitely go to Monaco on a high note, but we know that we still have a lot of work to do", Hamilton said.
