merc-hami-budd-2013-2-886x590Lewis Hamilton surprised with third place in race grid for Indian Grand Prix. Also he added that “Strategy is going to play a huge part in Indian GP”.

Hamilton congratulated Vettel who took pole position for the seventh time this year. “Obviously that’s some serious pace that they have,” he said, “especially with Webber on the [mediums] just behind us, it’s been a tough weekend for us,” Hamilton said.

“We’ve been pushing as hard as we can, we really want to get a great result this weekend. Strategy is going to play a huge part.”

“But I was a bit surprised to be where we are. Generally, bit by bit, just adjusting the set-up, we got a reasonable balance. Hopefully tomorrow we can push together to try and stay ahead of the rest.”

Hamilton told with his official facebook page “I’m pleased with third place today as it’s been a tough weekend to get the car set up and squeeze as much performance as possible from it. The team have done a great job to make progress since Friday and I’m delighted for everyone to see both Nico and I in the top three today. It was a good lap although I lost maybe a little bit of time at the last corner.”

“Of course, tomorrow is what counts and the race will be difficult with the different strategies and tyre choices. We’ll hope for a good start, get rid of the softs early and then focus on pushing as hard as we can on the primes.”
