This is the first time Hamilton has failed to make it out of Q1 since last year’s Belgian GP.
Lewis Hamilton speaking to Sky F1’s Rachel Brookes on his Q1 crash:
“I’m OK. It happened really quickly.
“It is what it is. Of course it’s unfortunate. I tend to just look at it as challenges are what makes life interesting and overcoming them makes life meaningful.
“I just need to take whatever bubble of negativity comes from that experience and move forwards and try and grow from it.
“It’s very unusual from me but it shows we are all human and things happen.
“I will try to have as much fun as possible tomorrow. Years ago I came from quite far behind and had a great race.”
