Lewis Hamilton Wary Of Rivals' Street Smarts In Baku

And in the last race in China he was forced to hand third place to the four-time champion in the opening laps after Vettel said he could go faster.

While Leclerc is still smarting from the team orders that have played a part in all three races thus far, Hamilton admits that he understands the frustration.

"It's a really great track and it's one that I've honestly struggled at a little bit, particularly a year ago", Hamilton said. "So it is very similar", Hamilton said.

"For sure, I think he's a bit younger than I was by a year or two", Hamilton told reporters in Baku is he could see similarities between the Monegasque's situation and that of his own in his rookie season at McLaren alongside a multiple world championship victor.

"There have been a couple of scenarios when there are multiple world champions who demand the number one position and so you become a number two", Hamilton added.

"Baku is quite an interesting race because on a street circuit, you usually want to run a lot of downforce", said Verstappen. Because in his heart he believes he's the best, or has the potential to be the best.it's nearly like having your light dimmed. As a racer and a fierce competitor, you naturally rebel.

Verstappen crashed out of the 2018 Azerbaijan Grand Prix after a collision with Ricciardo at turn one but wants the 2019 event to turn into a "good story" for himself, his team and engine suppliers Honda as they gun for their first victory since their partnership formed ahead of the current campaign. He just has to keep doing what he is doing and it will come to him. "In some situations I will".
