Lewis Hamilton 'super-stoked and excited' after topping practice

Hamilton The team have worked to perfection F1: 2019 Australian Grand Prix Preview

Five-times champion Lewis Hamilton dominated Friday practice at the season-opening Australian Grand Prix, topping the timesheets for Mercedes in both sessions to deliver an ominous warning to his Formula One title rivals.

The pair were very much on the pace in the first practice session yesterday, with both drivers within eight-hundredths of a second of Lewis Hamilton's best time.

Mercedes stars Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas came on stage with team chief Toto Wolf, with the British driver snapped taking pictures of the supporters gathered in Melbourne.

Vettel was fifth overall following his own trip across the grass at Turn 1 early on, and there was a sense of deja vu as he was closely followed by his former teammate Kimi Raikkonen.

Hulkenberg's time signified a much more competitive showing for Renault than in FP1, with Daniel Ricciardo less than 0.1s further back on a 1m23.644s.

"I have a positive buzz from driving the auto today".

"The vehicle is in a similar place to where it was in Barcelona, which is really positive coming from a different track".

"Of course, I'm always anxious and we had a laugh previous year because I couldn't get hold of him or my chief strategist or one of the race engineers because they were racing motorbikes", he said.

"We didn't have a flawless start for winter testing, so there are a lot of things to be checked".

Samsung Launches Galaxy S10 Flagship
Furthermore, Samsung suppliers such as O-film and GIS are also likely to extract profits from the increased S10 series sales. The Korean company is expected to launch the Galaxy S10 5G later this month and the Galaxy Fold around mid-May.

Hamilton is gunning for a third world crown in a row to close in on Michael Schumacher's all-time record of seven.

But all the ability in the world can't mask the fact the vehicle just isn't good enough.

"We didn't bring a lot of new parts to the vehicle, but we were able to optimise the package that we have", he said. But after a reasonably year with Toro Rosso in 2018, the Japanese manufacturer seems to have got its act together, and now that their powerplant is in the back of the Red Bull cars, we could see them challenging for wins in 2019. Feels quite odd. Seems to be something wrong. He recovered but later told the team his vehicle was "still a bit wobbly".

Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel made too many errors to surrender the impetus.

"It has been alright".

"We never sit still so we've got to evolve our track", Westacott said.

The other rookie, British-born Thai Alexander Albon, had a hard first day.

It was a tricky second session for the inexperienced drivers, with Alexander Albon again making errors after his crash in FP1.

The team also ended the day with engine concerns after Gasly reported a lack of power from his Honda motor in the final minutes of afternoon practice.
