Lewis Hamilton admits title rival Max Verstappen and Red Bull are ‘a step ahead’ and ‘did a better job all round’ in Dutch GP win as British star criticises his team’s strategy

Lewis Hamilton said Red Bull were on another level to Mercedes after he ceded his overall Formula One world championship lead to Max Verstappen at the Dutch Grand Prix on Sunday. ‘They just did a better job all round,’ said Hamilton, who has won four of the season’s races but has been waiting for a career 100th since his home British Grand Prix in July. ‘They definitely were faster today, there wasn’t really a lot that I could do to answer to the lap times that he was putting in. Hamilton, the most successful Formula One driver of all time, faces a major challenge if he is to win an unprecedented eighth championship and he said the next race at Monza in Italy would be tough. ‘I definitely think that wasn’t our best strategy,’ he said.
