Cape Town - Lewis Hamilton is prepared for a very tight title race with Ferrari and believes the Safety Car significantly aided his fifth victory in China.

The Brit led from start to finish after a long stint on the softs, building up enough of an advantage to earn a free pit stop and finish the race on fresher tyres.

Hamilton was also asked for his thoughts on the title picture.

"I'm looking forward to this, not only with Sebastian but with the other guys who will be amongst it.

"Ferrari have done a fantastic job and it is great that we are both pushing. "Those last 20 laps or so, we were really exchanging times and I tried to match it. He was closing the gap a little bit but I managed to stay ahead."
