We were doing so well in practice and in Q1 and Q2, Hamilton added. It was quite easy to be at the front. The car started bottoming a lot more in Q3 but I don’t know whether that had anything to do with the balance of the car, but I just had no more time in the car. The car was sliding a lot more. In Q1 and Q2 the car was even better and I really don’t understand what was wrong with the car in Q3 but I wasn’t able to get any more time out of it. That was me on the limit so I don’t know where the time is. We have to go and analyze it and try and find it, but I’m sure tomorrow will be a good race.
Lewis Hamilton was out qualified by team-mate Jenson Button for the third time this year, after the reigning champion position his best time of the weekend in the third session.
