Despite losing his championship advantage to Max Verstappen after the Turkish Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton says he doesn’t “feel any pressure”.

Lewis Hamilton finished the Turkish Grand Prix in P5, after starting from P11 due to an engine swap which triggered a ten-place grid penalty.

His title rival Max Verstappen finished the race in P2, so he now leads the Drivers’ Championship by 6 points.

Despite this, Lewis says he is “very chilled”.

“I don’t feel any pressure, I’ve been very chilled,” the Briton said after the race.

“I don’t like losing points, but that’s just the way it is. I did everything I could this weekend.”

However, Lewis now has a new engine and it’s unlikely that he will have to take on a another one this season. In addition, Mercedes showed promising pace, with Valtteri Bottas dominantly winning the race.

“We haven’t done anything to the car, so I don’t really know why that is the case. I think the two tracks that we’ve just driven on maybe suited us a little bit more.

“The car has been feeling good, it felt great this weekend. Valtteri did a great job today, and if he can continue to perform like that over the next races, that will be good for the team.

“If the car continues to behave as it has this weekend, that will be good for us,” concluded the seven-time champion.
