Hamilton challenged on several fronts in exciting F1 season

Bottas, meanwhile, is only 10 points behind Hamilton.

Ferrari's Formula One championship leader Sebastian Vettel made light on Thursday of media speculation that he might move to rivals Mercedes in 2018.

And far from installing himself as Mercedes' No. 1 driver, Hamilton has watched newcomer Valtteri Bottas pull away to an impressive debut victory at the Russian GP last round.

The track, located close to the city of Barcelona, is one of the venues used as a pre-season test circuit, so all of the teams already have experience and data of their 2017 specification cars on the track. He was when he joined.

"Fair play to him".

"I think here qualifying is very important, but we can't rely on qualifying only".

Afterwards Hamilton said he had no answer for his struggles, while earlier this week Mercedes motorsport boss Toto Wolff suggested there were "no magic bullets" that would prevent the problem reoccurring.

"Coming into this weekend we have a good understanding of what went wrong", said Hamilton.

Anderson Cooper's Eye Roll Was 'Sexism'
The best thing about FBI Director James Comey's firing is that it brought Kellyanne Conway back, and I can't lie, I've missed her. Sean "Spicy Facts" Spicer has gotten a bit better at dodging questions about this dodgy-ass administration, but Conway is pure.

"So we're focusing a lot more on getting the vehicle better set-up with all the compounds, because we feel that's a big area where we can improve".

"The only thing we are missing is better results".

"It's a unique circuit, especially with the last sector how you manage the tyres and how you set-up the auto, so there are things we [Lewis and I] were doing differently".

"So fair play to him and he's going to remain a competitor through the rest of the year so the fight will go on and we've stated our relationship with a really great foundation I think, a respectful foundation and I think that will continue".

In Russia, Hamilton was out of contention well before Bottas fended off Vettel for the victory.

But after a night out in Hungary's capital, the former Williams driver says he is now ready to build on the opening win of his career.

Ferrari enjoyed a strong start to the 2016 season, regularly appearing on the podium and at times challenging for race wins but slid back in the development race as Red Bull came to the fore. It is quite nice but after a few days, it is done.
