Hamilton reckons Ferrari and Red Bull will ultimately 'hot up' F1 championship
Mercedes racer Lewis Hamilton believes that rivals Ferrari and Red Bull will come up good and the Formula One championship will be 'hot up', despite claiming a dominant victory in the Malaysian Grand Prix.
The British racer is reportedly convinced that both Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel and Ferrari's Fernando Alonso will both be in the mix for the Formula 1 title despite Mercedes' crushing back-to-back wins.
According to the Mirror, Hamilton said that looking at Vettel's pace during the Malaysian Grand Prix, Red Bull's car is just as quick through the corners as his team's adding that they are just slower on the straights.
Hamilton also said that Vettel was massively quick at the Malaysian circuit and feels sure that Renault is soon going to fix the Red Bull car's slow speed problem at the straights.
The Malaysian Grand Prix winner said that when Vettel's car is fixed people are going to see a big race between Mercedes and Red Bull.
Hamilton also said that Ferrari are also not too far off and the competition is going to 'hot up' during the year, the report added.
