Hamilton: Vettel's 'got it easy'

MONTE CARLO, Monaco - Lewis Hamilton has hit back at Sebastian Vettel's description of the Mercedes cars in the 2013 Monaco GP as "buses".

Red Bull's World champion Vettel, who finished second behind Nico Rosberg, said of the opening laps in Monaco: "You expect two silver arrows and there were two buses going for a cruise".

Hamilton, who switched to Mercedes over the winter, told the Press Association he didn't appreciate the analogy.

'HE'S GOT IT EASY'

"He has had the fastest car for the last four years, so it's easy for him to say that. He's got it easy," said the Briton.

"We are making our way up, we are learning, growing, improving with a car that has great potential, so I don't agree with him."

Hamilton was more reluctant to talk about the furore caused by Mercedes' 'secret' tyre test, insisting he has to focus instead on getting up to speed with the on-form Rosberg.

"I just have to focus on myself and try and get my act together," he said.
