Hamilton wants McLaren to investigate his pit stop trouble

Published

Disappointed Lewis Hamilton says that he wants to investigate his pit stop trouble through the Bahrain Grand Prix. The Brit dropped from diver’s championship top and in Bahrain race he goes down from 2nd to 8th place.

The McLaren speedy start from the second on the grid after his first pitstop error loss 9.9 second and second pit-stop 12.2 seconds loss both stops at the left-rear tyre fitting problems and the lost time saw him lose out on crucial points in the championship.

Asked by Sky Sports if there would be an investigation into the problems, he said: “There should be. We gave a lot of points away today, which is what championships are lost from. We have to try and make sure we pick it up from the next race because we can’t afford to lose points like we did today.”

“There weren’t many positives for me today,” he added. “The four points is the only positive I can take away from today. My pace wasn’t great. I really struggled to look after my rear tyres through the whole day. We picked up some time at the end of the day and at the end of the stint I looked after my tyres and I got everything I could out of the car.”

Martin Whitmarsh McLaren team Principal says that the team changed the mechanic on the rear wheel gun between Hamilton’s first and second pit stops, but confirmed the team would investigate the problems.

“Lewis pulled off some sensational passing manoeuvres in his efforts to push his way through to the front, but in the end he was let down by two slow pit stops, both of which were caused by delays at the left-rear corner of his car. Jenson’s pit stops were trouble-free, by contrast, so we’ll have to investigate what the problem was with the left-rear corner of Lewis’s car.
