Vettel: Hamilton did an exceptional job

ddr1327JY074_2978701Hungarian Grand Prix practice dominator Sebastian Vettel praised pole sitter Lewis Hamilton and the German says that Hamilton did an exceptional job through the final qualifying Q3 session.

Defending world champion early set provisional pole position with brand-new Pirelli compound, but Lewis Hamilton set fastest lap-time by just 0.038 seconds ahead, with his second attempt and to set fourth pole of the season and 30th career pole.

“At the end of the day I was pretty happy with my lap but it was not fast enough,” Vettel said during post-qualifying press conference.

“I think Lewis did an exceptional job if you look at the gap to Nico. You have to be fair and respect that. I’m not arguing with that.”

“There wasn’t much missing,” he stated. “I was pretty happy with both laps. Maybe on the second try I lost out a little bit in the middle sector; it’s very twisty and there are a lot of corners in a short amount of time, and maybe I wasn’t aggressive enough. But it’s stupid to sit here now and to say we maybe should’ve done this or that.” He added.

“I would love to be a little bit faster and on pole, but it still puts us in a great place for tomorrow. We have a good car and good pace for the race.”
