Formula One News » Hamilton believes Mercedes can close the gap with upcoming developments

Lewis Hamilton who finished the Australian grand prix in 5th position thinks Mercedes can bridge the gap to the front runners as they have “some good things in the pipeline”.

“I always like to go forwards rather than backwards, but overall it is a really good step for the team. It was great,” said Lewis Hamilton. “I’m really happy, way better than we ever expected for the first grand prix, so it’s a good place to start.
“We’ve a good platform to work from. The car felt good and I enjoyed every moment. The only thing is we’re going to have to figure out where we lost time to other people.”

“I don’t know how they managed to pull away from us so quickly at the start, but we’ll keep pushing and we’ll get there eventually.”

“We’ve a good chance to close up because we’ve some good things in the pipeline. I really feel we can compete with those guys.”

“Only time will tell,” he told the Daily Mail. “If we look back maybe some of the guys will feel a bit frustrated we didn’t finish where we started from, or even further forward.”

“But that’s a good feeling to have because we came here not knowing what would happen.”
