After winning the race for the GP of Russia, Lewis Hamilton admitted that he had a lot of luck this time, because, according to him, Ferrari was much faster than Mercedes in the race.
Hamilton took the lead thanks to a virtual safety car caused by Sebastian Vettel’s resignation, and the Briton also had a little bit of luck with a safety car after the collision of George Russell.
The current world champion admitted after the race that the victory in Sochi was mainly due to Ferrari’s problems and a little luck.
Hamilton said after the new victory:
“Ferrari has been on another planet since the start of the race. All of a sudden they drove off and I couldn’t keep up with them. I thought they would have degradation problems, which didn’t happen. We ended up being lucky with a safety car and the team did a great job. We have achieved a double win that no one expected after qualifying. ”
