Lewis Hamilton is very confident that he can get good results in Spanish GP. The FIA ruled that he had breached the rules in not return to the pits following finishing his qualifying best lap.
McLaren driver also says this is such a disappointment following his best pole position with whole session dominant performance.
Hamilton was quoted in a team statement issued late this evening.
“This is such a disappointment,” said Hamilton.
“Today’s qualifying session was one of the best I’ve ever driven – the whole car was just rolling so smoothly – it felt fantastic. “
“The team had done a fantastic job to bring the updates here this weekend – so I want to say a huge thank-you to all the men and women at the MTC for working day and night to get all the new components here this weekend.
“But, on my slowing-down lap, my engineers told me to stop on the track, and I didn’t know why. Later, to hear that I’d been excluded from qualifying was of course extremely disappointing.
“But, now, looking ahead to tomorrow, I think it’s clear that it’s going to be an incredibly tough race for us. Even so, as always, I’ll never give up and I’ll give it everything I’ve got. It would mean so much to me to get a good result here in Spain – it’s such a pleasure to come here and the support I get is amazing.
“As I always say, and as I always do, whatever grid position I start a Grand Prix from, I’ll always race my heart out.”
