F1: Lewis Hamilton 'is Mercedes No 1' claims former driver
Team orders suggest former McLaren driver will be given preferential treatment over Nico Rosberg,
Tuesday 09 April 2013
Lewis Hamilton is getting favourable treatment at Mercedes ahead of team-mate Nico Rosberg, it has been claimed. Former driver Allan McNish says their pursuit of the world title has seen a clear order emerge before Sunday's Grand Prix in Shanghai.
Mercedes denied Nico Rosberg's requests to pass Hamilton for third place in Sepang last month and McNish said: "Just look at that conversation over the radio. Even though it's not official, there's definitely a strong focus on Hamilton being their main challenge for the championship."
McNish added: "They've opened their arms to Hamilton and they've got their arm round him."
