Hamilton expressed his huge relief during track interview, who slipped down early stage of Q3 behind the Vettel.

“I gave it everything he could,” Hamilton told the interviewer Martin Brundle. “It was so close between these Ferraris, the Ferraris just pulled something out when it got to Q3 and I was just praying I could do it for you guys [the fans].

“I’m so grateful for the support because without you guys I wouldn’t have been able to do it.”

“Lewis did a special lap and it’s all down to him,” says Mercedes’ non-executive chairman Niki Lauda. “But my worry is with the Ferraris.”

Toro Rosso ace Brendon Hartley not appeared in qualifying following huge FP3 crash and also the Williams man Lance Stroll missed whole qualifying session after his Q1 early crash without a lap time.
