Lewis Hamilton says that he is not frustrated with early team mistakes and the consequence was lost his most valuable points also it’s equally effect team constructors and drivers’ standings.

“I don’t know if it’s an inconsistent season… well, potentially yeah, a little bit, because of the tyres. I think the tyres, you sometimes get them in the working range and sometimes you don’t.” Hamilton said.

“I think a lot of teams are struggling to understand why sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. But that’s the challenge we all are faced with. But I think people are enjoying it. I notice people are asking a lot of questions about how there’s been five different winners and the fans I’ve met had said this is a fantastic season regardless, so I hope that continues.”

“I’m not frustrated, no. This is the way racing goes sometimes. Of course, looking at the qualifying results we’ve had for the five races, we would have loved to have finished further up and we definitely need to improve to ensure that we stay where we are or we move forwards. Yeah, we’ve started high up finished a little bit further behind from where we started so we’ve gone backwards a little bit in most of the races but we’re working very hard to make sure that doesn’t continue.”

“I don’t really know what else I can say, really. Mark’s said it all. I really enjoy the racing that we have now, as I’ve enjoyed it every year, and every year is a new challenge and I think that’s what the rules are there to give us is challenges. It is a little bit different, where we’re not pushing 100 percent in the race. There are some points in the race where you can really push but not for very long and perhaps it is more about endurance, as Mark said, to try and make these tyres last, but it is still a challenge to extract the most out of the tyres for a longer period. “2008 world champion added.

“It still requires skill and technique and finesse to do that stuff so we’re still all trying to – speaking for myself – I’m still trying to get that fine touch sorted. But nonetheless, it’s still Formula One, it’s still fun and there’s more overtaking which is what people like to see.”
