    Hamilton is whining(latter he changed the intended meaning on a word “Tricks”)they have a better car blah blah blah, Force India car was much faster on that straight then Ferrari, does it mean force India using tricks, it a slipstream surge..... That 11 seconds was Hamilton intentionally driving slow to save engine for better performance in next race, earlier wasn’t he lapping quick laps faster then vettel before 1 st pit and few laps after pit. What during that moment his car worked on magic wand r wat to go faster then Ferrari...... Loser always search for lame reasons for his incapablities, usually he put on Mercedes, nothing new... Kimi wife was spot on “HE SHOULD BE DOING BALLET”, his principle is if he won its pure on by himself if others won its only bcs of car..... SORE LOSER

    He'd have done it elsewhere if it wasn't lap one.. The straight line speed was amazing.. He overtook through outside came in front and then covered the inside line.. That's blistering pace..

    And if he hadn't done it there, he'd have done it after the safety car. Ferrari's power is immense now.

    Another super fast parade. Back markers were the only entertainment except for Alonso’s crash.
