Friday practice pace setter Lewis Hamilton pleased with McLaren pace and consistency and he added that McLaren got through a lot of good set-up changes.
Hamilton hints option tyre was top fastest but he suggest prime tyre better for Canadian GP and he says yesterday one-stop strategy most excellent for Canadian race.
“I’m very happy with my start to the weekend: happy that the rain held off for both sessions today and happy that we got through a lot of good set-up changes. “ Hamilton said.
“This is a great track to drive – it’s a place that requires 100 percent commitment and where the driver can really make a difference. It magnifies the differences between drivers. Today, even though the option tyre was a little quicker, I preferred running on the prime tyre.
“It was an unfortunate day for Jenson, who had some problems with the back-end of his car. Still, I was very pleased for him that he was at least able to get out at the end of the session and get some laps under his belt. “
“This is a place where it’s important to do some running, because there are some pretty close walls and you need to build your speed up gradually. So today has been positive, but it’s definitely going to be tight this weekend – not just for qualifying, but for the race, too.”
