And on the battle with Ferrari, Hamilton admitted: "It's going to be very, very close this weekend, the Ferraris are really fast". "Not every decision can be the same, and I don't see the necessity to decide every time". Vettel said the Sainz had completely understood what had happened, was relaxed about it and said it was no problem, but the stewards still felt the need to act. "I hope we can be there".

Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen finished a close second, with teammate Vettel third against expectations after a grid penalty had demoted him to sixth on the grid.

Hamilton, who is going for a fifth straight victory and a record sixth overall in his home Formula One race, clocked the best lap time at 0.367 seconds faster than Bottas.

This year's grand prix was held from March 22-25, welcoming nearly 300,000 fans over four days as Melbourne hosted the opening round of the 2018 season, which saw Sebastian Vettel victorious for the second year running.

"Nobody is ideal. It would be boring if that was the case", added Hamilton, 33, whose new £120million contract with Mercedes will not be announced this weekend.

Hamilton said: "The atmosphere has been great - the weather is fantastic and the crowd was incredible". "We're flat out through Copse and Turn 1 and through Turn 2 with the DRS - it's insane how fast it is".

Although Red Bull was able to get the auto back to the garage with more than 50 minutes of the session remaining, the scale of the damage ensured Verstappen didn't return to the track. It has to be the best track in the world, it feels like driving a fighter jet around the track.

"However, it is also the bumpiest track I've ever experienced".

"I don't know what makes Lewis tick, but it seems a fairly freaky thing for somebody to feel they need to throw themselves under the bus to motivate a driver to go from fourth back into the lead", he said, per the Daily Mail. "That would be very good news". "I think it made us stronger".

"We've always said that we have very clear rules and that's what we go by since I've been in this team", he said. I think it was the bump.

Hamilton says he wants to watch the match, and has joked with the media delegate for governing body the FIA about missing the mandatory post-qualifying news conference.

"The Grand Prix has become a pillar of Victoria's world-class events and sports calendar and we're proud to again be hosting the season opener in 2019", John Eren, Minister for Tourism and Major Events said.

"I was actually going to ask what is the penalty for missing the press conference on Saturday".
