Following he made another mistake during his first Q3 attempt and hit the wall at Turn 10, its resulted to start only 10th for inaugural Azerbaijan Grand Prix.
“I had a fantastic rhythm yesterday but zero today. Sometimes it happens.” Hamilton said following the qualifying.
“I can’t really say yet what possibilities there are but obviously I have to try and get up as high as possible tomorrow. It is damage limitation from here and I will do what I can.”
“The team did make a change to some thing but I was just not on it today,” said the Mercedes man.
“Just a rough session, just one of those sessions that you don’t need,” the Brit added.
“These kind of days come and go, and you have to take the rough with the smooth.
“The car was generally good, I just was not able to get into a rhythm today.”
When the media asked if the awkward angle of the sun had hampered him, he added: “No, it was just me. I wasn’t in it, wasn’t hitting the apexes, the right braking zones, none of it was in the right place today.”
