Hamilton fires warning to Mercedes rivals

Lewis Hamilton has warned Mercedes has "a lot to come" in future races having edged closer to the top of F1.

The Silver Arrows had struggled early in the season with Red Bull and Ferrari in a league of their own.

But whilst a deficit still exists, Mercedes has introduced upgrades that have allowed the team to close in on the battle with the top two teams in the constructors' championship.

The Canadian Grand Prix saw Hamilton end a podium drought that stretched back to the opening race of the season in Bahrain, and the Briton has featured in the top three of each race since.

Speaking after finishing second in France, Hamilton fired a warning to Mercedes' rivals.

"It's been really positive to have some consistency come back in and bit by bit you're getting a little bit more comfortable in the car," said Hamilton.

"And also with the direction where you set the car up… where you position the car, what the car will accept?

"Obviously, it bit me in the last race with the crash in qualifying but otherwise, as I said, we're constantly adding performance, we're constantly progressing forwards and there's a lot to come in the next races.

"So I'm excited about that and as I said, in the last race we were only a few tenths off the lead guys in qualifying so I think slowly we're getting closer.

"The gap may be bigger in some tracks, who knows, but… in [Austria], I was seeing it on TV, as I said, the battle up ahead, I hope that I get to be a bit more in the battle sometime soon."
