Bahrain Grand Prix: Hamilton and Button react to qualifying

Lewis Hamilton tells BBC Sport's Lee McKenzie he is "very happy" after qualifying in second position for the Bahrain Grand Prix behind reigning world champion Sebastian Vettel.

The 2008 world champion believes tyre management will be "critical" during Sunday's race in the desert, and reckons most drivers will make either two or three pit stops at a Sakhir circuit which is "not great for overtaking".

Hamilton's McLaren team-mate Jenson Button states fourth place is "not what he had hoped for" after struggling to find a good balance in his car, but anticipates the race will be "a lot more fun" following the return to form of their Red Bull rivals.
