The former boss of Ferrari Ross Brawn spoke of the victory of Lewis Hamilton and the superiority of Mercedes this season : " He (Hamilton NDLR) and his team (Mercedes NDLR) have proven that they can win even when they do not have the fastest package, a rare situation in the last five years. Lewis won thanks to the choice of a single stop and the realization that the track position was fundamental. These factors, combined with Lewis' innate ability to handle the tires, sealed a superbly executed victory. In a way, this race reflected the season as a whole: this year is the first in the hybrid era where the technical superiority of Mercedes was challenged, but at the same time, the driver and the team found the way to get the most out of their package, taking full advantage of unforeseen circumstances and the mistakes of others.
