Hamilton says heart-breaking DNF in Singapore GP

Lewis Hamilton takes the control of the Singapore Grand Prix qualifying and race, but he unfortunately retired from the race on the lap 23, due to gear-box failure. He made a clean start and expand two seconds gap with Sebastian Vettel.

Hamilton’s DNF cost his driver championship standing, he has dropped from second to fourth in the title standing.

“It’s heart-breaking not to have finished the race,” he said.

“We definitely had the pace to win and, in fact, before I retired I was cruising – just managing the gap back to Seb (Sebastian Vettel). Then I started to experience difficulty with the gearshift, then I lost third gear and then the box kept dropping into neutral.

“Obviously, I was disappointed, but the good thing we can take away from this weekend is that we have extremely good pace.

“As a result, I think we can really attack in the next few races. It’s going to be hard to close the gap to guys like Fernando [Alonso] and Sebastian, especially when they keep finishing race after race, but I’ll never give up.

“There are six more races, and I need to go and win all six. I’ll fight until the end.”
