Hamilton: Red Bulls will be tough to beat

Published

Lewis Hamilton says that he was struggled with huge understeer in qualifying and the race. But he is happy with the points finish. The Brit hints Red Bulls will be tough to beat in remaining races in this season.

Hamilton start from ninth on the grid, he struggled too in first segment of race with tyre degradation, he added that McLaren made the right call for tyre change and he was finished fifth place behind his team-mate.

Lewis Hamilton now fourth in the championship, 42 points behind the leader Fernando Alonso and just five points gap with the third place holder Kimi Raikkonen.

“I got everything I could out of my car and looked after my tyres quite well,” Hamilton said.

“The long first stint was not too exciting but I got everything out of the car. The lap I first came in, the tyres were just finishing. I wanted to continue but the team made the right call to bring me in.

“They were fantastic pit-stops, but I’ve had a bit of strange behavior with my car this weekend; amazing understeer in qualifying and the same today, so I was falling back and just wasn’t quite enough. For the championship, I’m quite realistic about my situation but I’ll keep pushing for better qualifying results.”

“We’ve had some strong results and Jenson did good job today and with better qualifying we would have had a better result. But the Red Bulls will be tough to beat.”
