Published

on

LEWIS Hamilton admitted to being in “disbelief” after seeing victory in the Australian Grand Prix slip from his grasp.

Mercedes are still unsure how Sebastian Vettel won F1’s season-opener.

But Hamilton, in philosophical mood on Sunday night despite the disappointment of seeing his great Ferrari rival overtake him in the pits under a mid-race Virtual Safety Car, stressed there was no “dark cloud” hanging over Mercedes after the world champions’ impressive pace at 2018’s curtain-raiser.

“I am in disbelief because I did everything I was supposed to do,” Hamilton said after finishing second.

“I drove as well as l could and l didn’t put a foot wrong.”
