However, the reigning world champion almost had his race thrown in the bin when Max Verstappen - charging from 15th through the field - made contact with Hamilton on the second lap, landing the Dutchman with a puncture that ultimately led to his retirement. "I had a good tow on the straight, the last corner was really good so it allowed me to stay close to Lewis." he said.
Verstappen has endured a frustrating start to the 2018 campaign, spinning out of contention at the season-opening Australian GP before crashing out of qualifying in Bahrain - an error that meant he started the race down in 15th.
"I think Max has to on reflection look at that and go "once I've got the inside line, then I should have left a bit more space". It is easy to get ahead of yourself and forget to respect the other guys that you are racing against", he said. "From my side I gave him enough room".
Watching the footage back afterwards, having finished third in Sakhir, Hamilton was overheard calling Verstappen a "d***head" for his failed manouvre.
When Hamilton was asked about his comments during the mandatory post-race news conference, Vettel intervened.
He also over-drove in the opening laps of the first race of the season trying to pass Kevin Magnussen's Haas, damaged his auto running off track and then spun, an incident that led to him finishing the race sixth rather than fourth.
"Hopefully when we go to the next race we'll have a better understanding of the tyres and hopefully put up a better fight with the Ferraris". Ultimately, I had a coming together with Max and it was an unnecessary collision. "I've lost two races now". Watch the Chinese GP exclusively live on Sky Sports F1 this weekend.
