"But what's important is that we all stay on our toes".

After the Bahrain Grand Prix Sunday the F1 'circus' headed straight to for the 3rd race of the season on 15 April. He said he might, but it wasn't a priority or a necessity.

As for Bottas, the accusation from Palmer is that other drivers are taking liberties with him because they don't think he's willing to take risks in the heat of battle. Overtaking is possible, but it's still difficult. If (McLaren's) Fernando (Alonso) was in their car, he would have got points for Red Bull. If I was in their car, I would have got points for Red Bull. Hopefully, that sign of respect shows a lot and helps you turn the page and move forward.

"I think it's always good to show respect. This should be a good track for us but I think it's going to be close".

"I went through that stuff when I was a young guy", the 33-year-old Hamilton said a few days ago. The Chinese GP in the recent years has been dominated by the Mercedes. It's racing; it's very simple. In fact, the team's best result thus far is a disappointing P14.

"If you make everything 100 per cent safe why do we watch F1 racing?"

But the Dutch driver, whose aggressive style has made him a fan favourite on the Formula One tour, earlier told reporters he would not change how he operates.

Hamilton will be desperately hoping the Shanghai International Circuit delivers a sixth as he bids to claw back some of the 17-point deficit to championship leader Vettel in the overall standings.

It is the first time since 2004 that Scuderia Ferrari has won the opening two rounds of a new F1 season. For some reason it's reacted to differently [in F1].

Ferrari were fined a combined total of 55,000 euros for two 'unsafe releases' with Kimi Raikkonen's car from pit stops in Bahrain, the second of which during the race resulted in mechanic Francesco Cigarini sustaining a broken leg. However, be warned - the bulk of the action takes place in the very early morning, so prepare for some extremely late nights or horrendously early wake-up calls. "We're here to finish on the podium and win races".

Certainly the ingredients are there for a superb fight this weekend.

Hamilton added that the issues he has faced this season, which also include radio communication problems in Bahrain, highlight just how high the standard needs to be at Mercedes with Ferrari breathing down their necks. But Red Bull could be a spoiler with just a little better fortune.

Red Bull's long-run pace in Friday practice ahead of both races has been comparable to Mercedes and Ferrari, so if they can string together an uninterrupted qualifying and fix their reliability gremlins, expect them to be right in the hunt.
