Sept.11 – McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton says its racing, after the safety car out of track and the race restart on Lap 4 following curve 1 incident, Hamilton was failed the start in Lap 4, and he down to 4th. And lots of actions made Hamilton and Schumacher in Italian GP (cat and mouse)
“It was a good race: I finished and I got some points, so I can’t really complain,” said the Englishman, who hadn’t seen the chequered flag in Italy since his title-winning season. At the restart, Michael was on my outside; I was looking at him in my mirrors then, all of a sudden, the guys ahead had gone, so I missed an opportunity to slipstream Sebastian (Vettel). So they caught me napping.
“We were a little bit slow on the straight today which meant it was hard to get past Michael, who was faster along the straight even when I had my DRS activated. I had to really fight Schumacher, but the fact that I finished ahead of him meant everything was okay – that’s racing. I doubt it’s still possible to beat Sebastian for the title, but we’ll keep pushing. For now, I’m looking ahead to the flyaways – they’re going to be exciting and I’m really focused on getting some more wins for the team.”
