Lewis Hamilton says he's the happiest he's been in a long time after he took a third-straight win to put him within four points of the championship lead.

The Briton has put his happiness down to a number of things including a settled personal life which, in recent seasons, has had its ups and downs.

His positive attitude off-track is having a positive impact on his career too. Hamilton has qualified on the front-row at all four races this season, won three and would likely have been in contention to win in Australia had reliability gremlins not struck.

"I am in the happiest mood that I can remember being in," he said.

"It was just a really incredible weekend. In the race, to get a great start and pull away, and control it from there, it was an incredible feeling.

"The job the guys are doing, and the guys that are around me, means I am so much more comfortable with the people I am working with this year."

When asked what had changed in his life, he replied: "It is a combination of lots of things. It is where you are in your life, family, girlfriend, where I live. Everything. And having the right people in place.

"My management, being in the right team, and then this year I am just able to arrive and drive with no other worries.

"And of course I have a great car and a great group of people to work with."
