Hamilton says Red Bulls will still be quicker in race pace

2008 world champion Lewis Hamilton set top fastest time in Interlagos second practice and he thinks that Red Bull could have been carrying more fuel on Friday. The British speedy set quickest lap ahead of world champion Sebastian Vettel, the gap between just 0.167 sec.

“The car’s been pretty good today,” he said. My second lap on soft tyres seems really good and I’m quite comfortable with the set-up changes I made going into the session and the long runs also seemed to be quite competitive.

“You always want to know what the Red Bulls are doing – they always seem to be a second faster so you assume they’re doing a lighter-fuel run than everyone else.

“But we were a similar pace to the Ferraris so we’re there or thereabouts.

“I think the Red Bulls will still be quicker in race pace. I might be wrong, but I’m just thinking about how you usually see it. I might be surprised. The car feels really, really good on low fuel and high fuel.”
