American GP: Hamilton worried about the dirty side of the grid



Lewis Hamilton says after the Qualifying he is not worried about the Turn 1, but he concerned about the dirty side of the grid, tomorrow he will start alongside with Pole sitter Sebastian Vettel.

Also he admitted that, he did not expect he would be capable to dig up anywhere near Red Bull’s pace, following the qualifying the Brit added that he was surprised by McLaren Q3 lap-time.

Hamilton was the only man Challenge with Red Bull duo during the Q3 final run. The Brit also pleased with Q3 qualifying lap.

“I’m very, very happy with my lap,” said Hamilton.

“I am not really concerned about the first corner, I’m more concerned about the dirty side of the grid, I did a launch from it in P3 and it is quite slippery. It is so wide in Turn 1, I don’t think much can go wrong.”

“I saw in Q2 they were massively quicker, a second or nine tenths. I didn’t know where I would find that. I went into Q3 and pushed as hard as I could, and found everything. I found more time in the last sector. I did two laps consecutively and surprisingly the second lap was quicker. The Brit added.

“On that lap I was on the limit everywhere. I think I lost about a tenth at the last corner – I gained it on the way in and lost it on the way out – but still I’m really, really happy to be where I am.”
