Lewis Hamilton hails third and fourth as a ‘great result’ for Mercedes at Australian Grand Prix and praises team-mate George Russell for his podium… but reveals frustration that he ‘couldn’t fight’ because his engine overheated as car woes continue

Lewis Hamilton has claimed he and team-mate George Russell produced a ‘great result’ for Mercedes by finishing fourth and third respectively at the Australian Grand Prix. ‘It’s a great result for us as a team, honestly,’ Hamilton told Sky Sports. ‘We definitely didn’t expect to have third and fourth (place) and George (Russell) did a great job today.’. Unable to hide his fiercely competitive nature, Hamilton could not help but express disappointment that he could not take on Russell for a podium place. But he clarified the comment was once again to do with his own car troubles. ‘Well I couldn’t fight for third because the engine was overheating,’ Hamilton revealed.
