Hamilton pleased with McLaren pace

Published

on

Once again Lewis Hamilton forced out from the Sunday main race, today the team confirmed that fuel pressure issue in his car and his race ended on lap 20.

But Hamilton still happy with the McLaren weekend pace, and he expecting luck will now swing with McLaren way.

2008 world champions also added that Vettel is the luckiest person in Formula 1, but the Brit is surprised to see Vettel get to the podium after starting last.

“I think this weekend we had the pace to get a one-two, I’m not really sure what Jenson was struggling with, but we had the strength in the car and the ability this weekend. Hamilton said.

“I think in the last four or five races we’ve had something fail on the car even when we’ve finished the race. I hope luck will now swing our way.”

“I was in a really comfortable spot. It wasn’t like I had [Sebastian] Vettel or a Red Bull behind me that was massively quick, Kimi drove phenomenally and I’m very, very happy for him, but I was comfortably in the lead and the car was just beautiful to drive.” said Hamilton.

“I was cruising and I was still pulling away.”

“It was still a good weekend for me. I really enjoyed it. At the time it felt fantastic in the car. We have a couple of other opportunities. Next time…” he said.

“Incredible how Sebastian came up from the pitlane, he’s got to be the luckiest person in Formula 1.” Hamilton said.
