Lewis Hamilton thrilled with fifth place

Sakhir (Bahrain), April 22 (IANS/CMC) Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton was thrilled at finishing fifth in the Formula 1 Bahrain Grand Prix.

The 27-year-old Hamilton, in his first season for Mercedes, started ninth on the grid and weaved his way through the field before overtaking Red Bull's Mark Webber on the final lap, to take eight points from the contest Sunday.

Lotus snatched a one-two with former World champion Kimi Raikkonen and Romain Grosjean while Force India's Paul Di Resta claimed fourth. Sebastian Vettel of Red Bull won the race.

"I'm really happy with our result. It's been a tough weekend for us but we got through it and finishing in fifth place was some good damage limitation," said the Brit.

"My race didn't start well at all. I was looking after the tyres but I really struggled on the first two stints and was falling back. But as the temperatures dropped, the car picked up and then I had the grip that I needed to push and close the gap."

Hamilton lies third on 50 points in the overall standings, with Vettel on top with 77 points and Raikkonen ten back in second.

The result kept Hamilton winless in Bahrain.

Formula One will head into a three-week break before restarting with the Spanish Grand Prix in Barcelona in mid-May.

Max Verstappen and 5 Phenomenal Young Talents on Track to Formula 1

Aug 19 2014 3:32am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Max Verstappen will replace Jean-Eric Vergne at Toro Rosso in 2015. In the process he will become the youngest driver in Formula One history, and the 14th graduate from the Red Bull Junior Team to reach the pinnacle of motorsport. He isn't the only youngster who'll be making a splash in years to come. All the top teams have driver-development programs of some description. McLaren's produced Lewis Hamilton and Kevin Magnussen, while Ferrari can be thanked for Sergio Perez a ...

Any probability Da Costa still had probably went out of the window when he agreed to do DTM. Sure, there’s Di Resta and further back Albers, but considering Red Bull usually park their drivers in reserve seats, I think they never intended him to be on the path to F1 after moving him there. As for Sainz and Gasly, if they’re still in FR3.5 next…[Read more] ...
