Lewis Hamilton feels 'bittersweet' for Lando Norris after 100th F1 win at Russian GP

After pitting for wet tyres, Hamilton was able to close the gap to the struggling McLaren and pass the 21-year-old as he dove into the pits two laps too late.

“I mean I’m not sure, it would have been tough to have got past Lando [had it not rained],” Hamilton added.

“They had great pace, he did the fastest lap so when tough to pass unless we caught some traffic or something.

“Or he made a mistake which he’s not been doing for at all.

“So, in the rain came and it was very opportunistic and as I said the team did an amazing job so big, big thank you to them.

“Otherwise, there’s nothing I can do about who’s behind me, that’s the dream result for Max naturally, but I’m grateful for the points.”
