Sept.24 – The British speedy Lewis Hamilton says that his car was refuelling issue in Singapore Qualifying. His team not capable to ready his can in time for Q3 second running.
But Lewis made first time was still sufficient to earn him a place on the second row.
“It was quite an eventful one,” Hamilton said of his session. “Nonetheless it’s still quite good, we’re competitive. We came in and tried to refuel the car but they had a problem so we were running out of time, we just couldn’t get enough fuel in. We were too late and unfortunately weren’t able to get a second run, but these kind of things happen.
“The team did the best job they could and we’re not in a bad position, but I think we probably could have been on the front row. I think we had a little bit more time in the bag which is good, so that’s a positive for tomorrow.
2008 world champion says that running over kerb was most likely cause for cars puncture in Q2.
“I went over a kerb and then they said they lost pressure immediately, so it might have been on a kerb. There are bolts hanging out of kerbs, that’s what they’ve been having problems with over the weekend, so maybe that’s it. But from fourth I hope we can only go forwards, I hope so.”
