Hamilton has a 29-point lead over his teammate Valtteri Bottas despite finishing three places below the Finn, but has made it clear that he will not ask his team to throw their weight behind him in a bid to have an advantage in the title race.

Hamilton is battling for his fourth Formula One world championship against the Ferrari of Sebastian Vettel, who extended his lead at the top after winning the Monaco Grand Prix yesterday.

Vettel resumed ahead of his colleague and was able to control proceedings and take the chequered flag, opening up a 25-point lead over Hamilton in the drivers' championship.

Vettel has won twice at Monaco equalling a numbers of drivers, including Lewis Hamilton and Juan Manuel Fangio. "So they are going to be pushing everything to make sure Sebastian will maximise on all of his weekends".

It was Ferrari's first one-two finish since 2010 and chairman Sergio Marchionne was quick to hail "a race which will be part of our history... a really exciting race where we saw the real scuderia (team)".

In a brief statement to USA Today, Williams said she isn't overly distraught by missing this event. "You know, she played well. First of all, the athlete referred to the baby as a " she ", so, yeah, Serena is definitely having a girl.

"We have been dropping in and out of the "tyre window" and never had two cars within that window over the course of whole weekend".

"We get along well and I can understand Kimi's not totally happy today". We go to the next race and try to do better.

Only Michael Schumacher has more than the Briton's five wins in Montreal and Hamilton is eager to add to his tally. In terms of looking for, I don't know if we will need more hard weekends or not.

"It is hard just to get to six points and be within firing range".

Things nearly changed late in the race when on lap 61 of the Grand Prix Jenson Button, in his last race ever, sent 22-year-old Sauber driver Pascal Wehrlein airborne and his vehicle onto its side against the fence at Portier.

Competitors can earn up to 30 points through the test, which will come into play right before the finals. Alabama hasn't had a National Spelling Bee victor since 1974, when Julie Junkin of Pickens County won.

"Canada is a completely different track but to be honest, for now I am just going to enjoy the win here", Vettel said after the race.

So will Mercedes now have to follow suit, by making it equally clear that Valtteri Bottas' is Hamilton's wing-man?

Hamilton, who struggled all weekend in Monte Carlo, will now aim to bounce back at one of his favourite races, next month's Canadian Grand Prix, but has admitted he faces a major challenge.

"But there might be some things along the way that position-wise, at some stage, might become valuable but who knows what is going to happen".

"So yes, we are the underdog and we need to catch up". They corrected things and it was worse so then we went back to this unknown scenario.

The first-round match started Tuesday, but was suspended because of darkness with Olivo leading 5-4 in the fourth set. Sixth-seed Dominika Cibulkova was the day's biggest casualty after Tunisian Ons Jabeur beat the Slovak 6-4 6-3.

In a reaction to Red Bull's Max Verstappen and Mercedes' Valtteri Bottas pitting and trying for an undercut, Ferrari told Raikkonen to "box" earlier than expected, releasing him into traffic after his pit stop. "This is the new reality".
