US GP: We will make some changes overnight for qualifying – Hamilton



Lewis Hamilton initially praises the US Grand Prix spectators; he said that people more than ‘expected’ attended in the grandstands for Friday practice and it will boosting their motivations for Saturday and Sunday event.

The Brit said that Circuit Of The Americas is the very tough track and he felt final two sectors easier than the first. Also he added that Turn one is not easy, drivers need tricky and perfect line through there.

In the morning practice session he set second fastest and second practice session he done fourth quickest, and also he admits that McLaren was struggled with switching on the tyres in the cooler conditions, they still need quickly heat-up into the tyres at the Circuit of the Americas. But 2008 world champion still believes that their overnight changes will boost-up some improvements in qualifying and race.

“What a great turn-out for a Friday! I never expected to see so many people in the grandstands – it makes me feel even more excited for Saturday and Sunday.” Hamilton said

“This is a great drivers’ track – it’s very tough to pull together three perfect sectors. Personally, I find the final two sectors easier than the first; those high-speed changes of direction need a good set-up, and balancing that requirement against the demands of the slow-speed stuff is tricky.

The Brit added, “Turn One probably looks more exciting from the outside than it does from inside the cockpit – it’s certainly not easy, though. You can get oversteer, or lock up, and it’s tricky to get a perfect line through there.

“Overall, we’ve had a good day. Our main difficulty this morning was switching on the tyres in the cooler conditions. But we’ll make some changes overnight – there are definitely some improvements we can make.”
