Melbourne: Thanking the McLaren team for “performing a miracle” in giving him a race-winning car at the Chinese Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton has said that they need to keep developing rapidly if they are to stay in the Formula One title race.
“Red Bull and the others are not going to be sitting around waiting to see what happens. It is going to be a massive fight from now on even if we did an incredible job to turn our fortunes around so much,” he said.
“There is no doubt that we needed that win in China. Looking back at the last few weeks, we have done something incredible at this team,” Fox Sports quoted Hamilton, as saying.
“To have turned the car around and made it a winner – we’ve never done something that big in such a short space of time. I take my hat off to everybody back at the McLaren Technical Centre,” he said.
“Once again, they’ve performed miracles, but we can’t sit still. We’ve still got more work
Hamilton``s win ended world champion Sebastian Vettel’s season-opening two dominant victories for Red Bull.
