I was not giving up lead - Hamilton

Lewis Hamilton and his Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg give their thoughts on their thrilling battle in the Bahrain Grand Prix.

Race winner Hamilton says he was "not giving up his lead" to Rosberg, who tells BBC Sport's Lee McKenzie he feels "very disappointed", admitting Hamilton "did a better job".

Hamilton's win closes his deficit to Rosberg in the championship to 11 points, following the Englishman's retirement from the opening race of the season in Australia where Rosberg won.
