Hamilton: Anyone's for the taking

Hamilton: Anyone's for the taking

Lewis Hamilton reckons F1 is in for a "very interesting" season after momentum swung in the way of Red Bull in Bahrain on Saturday.

After a slow start to the campaign in terms of their qualifying pace, Red Bull were back at the front around the Sakhir circuit where Sebastian Vettel claimed pole with Mark Webber third.

Second place went to Hamilton, who was 0.098s adrift, as the continued his impressive run of top-two qualifying times.

"I'm very happy with how qualifying went and the job the team has done so far this weekend," Hamilton said.

"I've put the car on the front row at every race this year, and I feel this was one of my best qualifying performances so far.

"Both my laps in Q3 were very good and I feel I got everything out of the car."

Looking ahead to Sunday's grand prix, Hamilton is eyeing a flying start which he hopes will give him the momentum needed to take Vettel into the first corner.

"Fingers crossed for tomorrow: both Red Bull drivers will be very hard to beat in the race, but we're less than a tenth behind on race pace.

"The start could be key - we've had good launches all season so I expect us to be able to challenge Seb down to Turn One.

"This season is shaping up to be very interesting: it's anyone's for the taking, at the moment."
