Hamilton and Webber say sorry to fans for Silverstone short- mileage



The local boy Lewis Hamilton and Australian Mark Webber apologized to Formula 1 fans for the short-run in Friday free practice for British Grand Prix due to heavy rain hits.

Practice one and two also interrupted with heavy rain fall and drivers says they want tyre rules wants to change and they added that we don’t have any tyres – well not enough tyres.

McLaren driver Lewis Hamilton walked the pit lane waves to the crowd during the second practice. This year record fans reach in Friday practice.

“For me I was just concerned for the fans,” Hamilton said.

“There were so many great fans here today and I don’t remember ever seeing so many on a Friday.

“Unfortunately it was terrible weather and also we don’t have any tyres – well not enough tyres – to go out and keep them entertained.

“I just really appreciate the support that we’re having so I hope that they just keep warm and stay strong, because it’s hopefully going to be a good weekend.”

Mark Webber also supports Lewis Hamilton’s statement: “Today most of us had our hands tied with the weather. “

“We would want to get the practice in to get on top of those conditions, but for us unfortunately there is no point being top of the pops today, doing loads of mileage, loads of wearing tyres out because we don’t get any points today.

“It is very frustrating for the fans and we do feel for them.”
