Lewis Hamilton pleased with second grid slot for Australian Grand Prix. He will start from third on the starting grid alongside with Ferrari’s Felipe Massa and also just behind the Red Bull’s Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel.
Following the Australian Grand Prix qualifying Lewis Hamilton says that he is really, really happy with the Mercedes performance especially in tricky condition. Also he praised hard work of the Mercedes. His team-mate Nico Rosberg will start from sixth on the grid.
“I’m really, really happy,” Hamilton told reporters after qualifying.
“The conditions were very tricky, but I’m happy that I finally got a lap as I’ve not had the best of weekends. I’m just grateful for all the hard work from the team. I’m happy with the step we’ve done and I think we’ve got a good baseline to work on.”
But, the Brit little bit qualm over the qualifying, and also he predict, possibly will struggle in main race following tyre more graining during the Q3 running.
“It’s going to be massively challenging with tyres,” he added.
“I’m not sure how long they will last, as they are already graining. I did one or two more laps than the other guys, so I will struggle to go as long as them in first stint. I will give everything I have.”
