Russian GP rehearsals ahead of tomorrow’s race.

Lewis Hamilton insists he does not feel like he has one hand on a fifth world championship amid the “most challenging” battle against Sebastian Vettel.

Hamilton leads the championship battle by 40 points with six races remaining but scoffed at the notion that he had the job half won heading into this weekend’s Russian GP.

Hamilton, by common consent, leads Vettel in the championship primarily to the excellence of his own performances whereas his rival has committed a series of high-profile mistakes.

Hamilton wouldn’t be drawn on whether he felt he had pressurised Vettel into those errors, but did elaborate on the wellbeing which has driven him to the top of the standings this year.
