Lewis Hamilton has insisted he is not feeling under pressure in his Formula One world championship fight with Max Verstappen. Hamilton made an uncharacteristic and costly mistake at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix but, speaking before Sunday’s French race, said he remained relaxed and had dismissed the incident.

“It definitely wasn’t under pressure from Max, I don’t even count it as a mistake,” he said. “I don’t feel any pressure, I feel pretty relaxed. You can’t always be perfect, a mistake is when you drive off the track through missing your braking point or going off hitting the wall but this wasn’t one.

“It was an unforced error, it was something we had that could have happened at any point. Unfortunately, it hit us pretty hard but we learned from the experience and we move forward.”
