Lewis Hamilton not worried about the penultimate lap in European Grand Prix race. The McLaren guy admits that his car was too struggled with tyre degradation.
Hamilton replayed the incident with Maldonado: “You never let people past, you’ve got to race for every position you can get.”
Maldonado reacted the second lap incident – Hamilton not gives any room.
“My tyres were gone,” said Hamilton. “I don’t know where I would have finished. Over the last lap or so, my tyres just went – it was almost like I had flat tyres at the back.”
“I don’t really know what happened, if I’m honest,” said Hamilton. “I went into the corner and I didn’t come out.
“It happened so fast, I really do not remember what happened. All I remember is sitting in the wall with only a lap to go.”
“You put your heart and soul into some things, and when you don’t get the results that you feel you worked for, it’s very tough, but that’s life.” He added.
“It does change a lot, we lost a lot of points today, but fortunately for us a couple of the others that were fighting as well – including Sebastian [Vettel] – weren’t able to score either,” said Hamilton. “But it does make things a little bit tougher.”
“I think we did the fastest pitstop of the whole season in our first pitstop and were a little bit unfortunate in the second.”
“We were a long, long way off today,” said Hamilton. “We’ve got a lot of work to do to try and pick up the pace because we were really struggling today.”
