Australian GP pole man Lewis Hamilton can’t enable finish top of the podium in Melbourne after race he says that he don’t know why he out-pace evaluated to team-mate Jenson Button.
The winner Jenson Button start from second on the grid and he made a fantastic start and Hamilton drop down one place, and his one more place down following safety car on the track when Vitaly Petrov stop in start/finish strait line.
“It just wasn’t a good day”, but when asked why, he admitted: “I really don’t know. I just struggled out there and got a shocking start which was the beginning of it all.” Hamilton told Sky sports.
McLaren Mercedes team principal Martin Whitmarsh said he was not stunned his driver was dissatisfied with the result.
“He’ll come away disappointed,” Whitmarsh said. “He wanted to win and not winning and being beaten by your team-mate is never going to make Lewis happy. The day he becomes happy with being third and behind his team-mate, he won’t be the Lewis that we know and love.
“He was very unlucky with the safety car and the start and the fact is he was utterly brilliant yesterday and knows he’s got the pace as well. He’ll be disappointed but he’ll get over that by tomorrow morning, bounce back and by next weekend he’ll be more determined to put it on pole and win that race, which is what we want him to be.”
“I’ll just refocus and get my head down and there are lots of race ahead,” he said. “These championships are all about consistency so that’s what I’m going to focus on.”
