Formula One: Damon Hill Warns Mercedes Over Lewis Hamilton

Hill has warned Mercedes about the need to treat the United Kingdom driver with care if they are to keep Hamilton, who could be in demand if other teams realise that he is not happy with his current team.

The new F1 season begins on March 26 with the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne, with Hamilton seeking to win back the world championship he lost to Nico Rosberg last season. Hamilton is also notable for his enthusiastic use of the social media platform, something that many experts and fans deemed as a distraction to his career.

Mercedes have dominated F1 for the last three years, marching to both the drivers' and constructors' titles and winning 51 of the 59 races since the start of 2014.

Just five days after Rosberg won the title in Abu Dhabi, he stunned the sporting world with his decision to retire from the sport as champion. Damon Hill has warned Mercedes that it must treat Hamilton carefully. "If it's not going well for Lewis, then he does have a tendency to make his feelings known".

"He is in a strong position".

With the fastest and most reliable vehicle on the F1 grid, Bottas is expected to push his new teammate, three-time world champion Lewis Hamilton, throughout the 20-race calendar. The sport's most successful team endured a trying and winless season a year ago but have been quietly going about their business, saying little and setting no expectations.

"Nico stopped because of the pressure of competing". But more crucially, they have been racking up the laps, completing 1,096 tours of the 4.655 kilometre Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, more than any rival.

"As a talented driver you must create the conditions where you can do your job without it consuming you".

"This is Lewis' 11th season on the trot and he knows how to manage his resources". "He is a Finn so he doesn't talk much, but he works hard to get used to the team".
