Hamilton: McLaren vs. Red Bull at Suzuka

Published

on

Hamilton at present stress-free mood, following close his future rumors, he says comfortable feeling after Suzuka Friday practice and he called it is a phenomenal circuit in the Formula 1.

Hamilton expecting McLaren will fine set-up the car tonight for tomorrow qualifying and McLaren very close battle between Red Bull.

The Brit’s team-mate Jenson Button took quickest lap-time in Friday morning practice session, just .233 seconds ahead of him. In the second practice session Button managed seventh place, but consistently Hamilton set second top fastest time, .214 seconds behind the Mark Webber.

“I have the coolest job! Suzuka is such a phenomenal circuit, the first lap out of the pits felt great. Just driving through the first couple of corners and feeling the acceleration, it takes a few laps to get warmed up, but you keep getting faster and faster as you push the limits. Hamilton said.

“But you need to be careful. At Spoon we saw a few people making mistakes today. If you put a wheel on the dirt, it’s very easy to lose the car. As always, we’ll be fine-tuning the car tonight ahead of tomorrow’s sessions, but it looks very close between ourselves and Red Bull.

“I feel comfortable with our car – it’s the best that it’s ever been around here – and I think I could have matched Mark’s fastest time with an optimal lap. It’s going to be very close in qualifying tomorrow.”
