  • Motor racing-Hamilton laughs off Horner calls for level field

    By John O'Brien SEPANG, Malaysia, March 26 (Reuters) - World champion Lewis Hamilton admitted he was amused by Red Bull boss Christian Horner's calls for Formula One to forcibly reduce his Mercedes team's advantage. Hamilton led a Mercedes one-two ahead of Nico Rosberg in Melbourne a fortnight ago and such was their dominance, a continuation of last season's supremacy, that Horner suggested measures may be needed to balance out the field. "Also it's only been one race, so to already have comments after the first race is what I find funny." Hamilton noted that Horner made few complaints when Red Bull claimed four constructors' titles in a row from 2010, with Sebastian Vettel winning the world title on each season, and said Mercedes had never voiced any displeasure during that period. We've pulled together and done an amazing job and I'm really very proud of that." Hamilton remains confident that Mercedes will stay ahead of the pack in Malaysia but is wary of the threat posed by his team mate in an evenly matched car.
