Lewis Hamilton believes that Ferrari will show more pace over the course of the weekend. The Briton topped the second practice session at the Yas Marina Circuit on Friday, a tenth and a half ahead of Sebastian Vettel.

Ferrari has admitted that they are not happy with the performance of the car in the final sector and will be carrying out a minor set-up change in an attempt to fix the issues. Hamilton thinks that on Saturday and Sunday it will be a close fight between Mercedes and the Maranello outfit.

"I'm definitely expecting more to come from them," Hamilton said. "We're going to make some set-up changes overnight so hopefully there is more to come from us as well. There's always a couple of areas [to change]. It was quite windy today with the headwind, tailwind, crosswind into corners so it's understanding that. But overall it's been a positive day."
