Hamilton: Lucky to survive from spin during qualifying Q1

Lewis Hamilton admitted that it was a lucky moment, when he was spin during Q1 and safely survived from huge incident, also without any major damage.

Following the heavy rain in the Qualifying Q1, Lewis Hamilton make the first time, following his new Mercedes spinning and slightly hitting the wall at turn two but luckily escape from without any major damage.

“It was pretty straightforward really, I just lost the back end and was in the wall,” Hamilton said following the Qualifying Q1.

“Fortunately I got going again – I was beached actually, I was stuck and luckily I put it in reverse and reversed half way up the bloody track! I can dust those kind of things off and keep looking forward to tomorrow.”

“I don’t think it compromises the race, if anything it’s better because you get a bit of a warm-up. Your body should be more energised and ready for the race so it should be interesting but I really hope it’s a dry day because today has been incredibly difficult for everyone.

“It’s incredibly tricky, probably one of the slipperiest circuits that I’ve raced on in the rain, simply because there’s a lot of white lines everywhere that are painted black. So as soon as you hit those the car slides and aquaplanes and oversteers so that’s why you saw so many people going off.”
