Hamilton: Rear suspension failure in Korean GP



Lewis Hamilton revealed that again rear suspension failure was the problem of the Korean Grand Prix struggling. The suspension failure cost his podium chance finally he was finished with only tenth place.

Lewis Hamilton started from the third on the grid; following turn one in the opening lap one place drop by Alonso’s attack. Before his early first pit-stop, the Brit complained the balancing issue and also down-force problem. Hamilton said following the race rear suspension failure, the same issue effected in Suzuka.

“Sam Michael just came to me and said that we had a rear suspension problem in the first stint, but they said it was safe for me to drive,” Hamilton said.

“I did ask [during the race] but I wasn’t expecting them to tell me. They said ‘we know what the problem is’ but I was just fighting the whole way with the car. I don’t know if you saw but down the pit straight the car was just moving, so I was correcting it all the time, which is really strange.”

“It was a real test but I just did absolutely everything I could. It wasn’t particularly fun; moving backwards and then fighting with the Toro Rosso – a McLaren should never be fighting with a Toro Rosso and it should never be fighting with a Force India – but I put up as strong a fight as I could with Kimi without colliding.

“This rules that we’re pretty much out of the championship today but sometimes these races show the true spirit within, so I feel quite comfortable with myself that I pushed and I gave it everything. It just added on to where my car was going anyway so I was lucky that I was able to at least hold on and hold on to tenth.”
