Lewis Hamilton: “Ferrari not extracting potential from 2019 car”

Lewis Hamilton believes that Ferrari has struggled to maximize the potential from the SF90 at the opening three races of the year. Ferrari star Sebastian Vettel finished third in Shanghai, behind Mercedes stars Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas. In Bahrain Grand Prix, Charles Leclerc finished third, while Vettel was fifth. In the first GP of the year, Ferrari stars were fourth and fifth. “I think with what we have we are operating with what we have at its full potential,” he said. “But there will be more performance improvements to come in the future, we will make steps forward. "I think in the last race [Bahrain], you can't say that was necessarily on full merit because weren't quick enough to win the race really. “But things happened along the way and you had to put yourself in position to get the win, so we did that. But I think particularly the first one [Australia] and particularly this one, full on merit. “I think the others, they've got a good car, the Ferraris, I think they're not extracting, [or it] doesn't look like they're extracting their full potential on the weekend, and then their execution doesn't always look as faultless as they have shown in the past. We know that we’ve got Ferrari knocking at our heels and we know that the Red Bulls are there or thereabouts somewhere but again, they’re not delivering as a whole, as we are as a team and that’s what it takes today, just overall maximum attack. It will be interesting to see how the next races go.”
