Vettel was untouchable – Hamilton

Published

on

Sept.10 – McLaren Lewis Hamilton hardly tries to take Pole, but he made some mistake in final running, he explains Vettel’s time as ‘untouchable’.

Vettel set his successive 10th pole of the season.

“I didn’t have another half a second in the bag,” said Hamilton. “We had a couple of tenths up on the car. The guys did a fantastic job to bring new components to the circuit, and we were very competitive. Seb was quicker today. We looked like we would be quite competitive through the weekend but today on the last lap he was untouchable.”

The British speedy Hamilton had been supreme in Q1 and both McLaren’s had been within a couple of tenths of Vettel in Q2, so Hamilton admitted he was surprised by how much performance the championship leader was able to unleash in the final segment.

“In Q1 and Q2 it was relatively close and they pull out half a second [in Q3],” said Hamilton.

“It is a long race tomorrow. The target is to finish. In the race I think we will be able to finish up quite high,” he added. I am pretty happy to be back up there getting another opportunity to have another good race tomorrow and hopefully things turn out better than the last race.”
