The Austrian Grand Prix had a few unexpected twists and turns, with both Mercedes AMG F1 machines retiring from the race, while Red Bull Racing's Max Verstappen managed to take a fine victory at the event. "I've got no time left in the tyres", said Hamilton, aware that a straightforward race win was in peril.

" When you look at how many wins I have had with this team, we've had far far more success than we've had failures and nobody is ideal". There's a great energy within the team so we've passed through the painful experience and actually brought us closer and made us stronger.

The 20-year-old came under pressure for a string of clashes early in the season in incidents that Red Bull team principal Christian Horner believes were not that different to Sunday's Austrian GP fight.

"The team were super on it and I am confident we have done everything we can to make sure it doesn't happen again". What I can say is I really feel like I have the best strategist team behind me. But as a driver, an athlete, a competitor I can't let that interfere with my weekend. "I think that obviously Mercedes has got so used to being at the front, qualifying on the front row, and any at race that they are not on the podium it is disastrous". "It's how the sport should be in a sense, that you're squeezing more out of the cars and out of the drivers as well so I think it's not a bad thing". "We are immensely proud of the four-day spectacle Melbourne puts on on an honoured to raise the curtain on one of the world's most prestigious annual championships".

'I go into this weekend with same mentality, hoping the vehicle is reliable. Hamilton was unhappy before his late retirement complaining to his team that "we've just thrown away a win", by bungling the timing of a tyre change. "It's a real privilege for me and I was just watching some of the replays of past year and if you look at the end when it shows you all of the positions and obviously to see the Union Jack up there is always a great feeling".

'I'm focused on what we do.

'The support here is unlike anywhere else and the atmosphere is incredible so I really hope I can deliver and perform and that's what I'm going to try and do'.
