Hamilton: We decided not to take a risk

35663_melbourne,_qualifiche__Lewis Hamilton was delighted with his first pole position of 2014 and the 32nd of his career, equalling Nigel Mansell’s career total.

“These new cars are so much harder to drive in the wet and it was the first time for me driving in the wet,” he said.

“A serious challenge today, but for both me and Nico to be up here is a great showing for the team.

“To be in Formula One has always been my dream but to get to as many poles as [Mansell] is incredible.”

“It was difficult to know where the turnover point was for intermediates and full wets. Do you take a risk or not? We decided not to.

“Ricciardo did a good job on the intermediate tyres, so it was a close call between the two tyres. The conditions made it extremely difficult. I hope the weather is better tomorrow for the fans but also for us.”
