Hamilton aims better result in Turkey GP

Published

on

McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton looking for realistic title to Turkish GP Race. After crashing from second at the end of the Spanish GP before racing to 5th in Monaco race, the McLaren driver recognize that the Woking team may not be intelligent to enjoy as much Turkish enjoyment as hoped for.

“I’m looking forward to Turkey.” Hamilton began. “I think we came away from Monaco with a respectable result but the MP4-25 wasn’t particularly well-suited to a tight and bumpy track like that. At a place like Istanbul Park, our car will be back in its element. It loves smooth, fast circuits, where the aero can really work over the car through the long, fast corners. It should feel fantastic to drive.

“So, looking at the characteristics of the track, it’s a place where we should be able to pick up from where we left off in Spain. We’re not under any illusions but we think we’ll be able to get another decent result and we’re hopeful of taking the fight to the cars at the front.”

Hamilton is also confident that grip levels will not be a trouble. “People have asked me whether tyre wear might be a problem this year, particularly with the higher fuel loads, but I think our car works well in high-speed corners and has typically been good at looking after its tyres during the race, so I don’t foresee there being any particular problems,” he added.
