Austrian GP: Hamilton frustrated by dozy pit-stop



Formula One World Championship 2014, Round 8, Austrian Grand Prix
After the Austrian GP race, Lewis Hamilton admits that he was frustrated with sleepy pit-stops, clearly we know, 2+ seconds lost price Hamilton’s victory. The Brit cross the finishing line 1.9s behind his team mate Rosberg.

“They haven’t yet. I didn’t even know I lost that much time, they didn’t feel that fast. Could be my positioning. I don’t know.” Hamilton said.

“I’ll obviously investigate… obviously it is frustrating when you lose time because you’re constantly doing everything you can to gain a tenth here, a tenth there, so when you lose quite a chunk… two seconds over two pit stops it’s tough but the guys… at least we haven’t really made any mistakes.”

“If we step back a little bit and look, we’ve had so many one-twos this is just incredible this year so I’m hoping in the future we won’t have those problems.”

Montreal problem followed with Hamilton’s W05, and he struggled with braking issues after second half of the race. But he well managed and perfectly keeps the position until the end of race.

“I don’t know. Going into the race I wasn’t aware that we had a brake problem, so it was news to me when we started to… when they started to speak to me about it.”

“We had the problem in the last race but the last race was the rears and in this race it was the fronts, a little bit different perhaps. I’ll be guessing what’s gone wrong but it didn’t look like it was the same as Nico; maybe it was, I don’t know. I think they said maybe it was. We just need to make improvements.”
