Lewis Hamilton 2nd in Valencia’s Euro GP Race

Sunday, June 27th, 2010

Lewis Hamilton post-race interview:

“Into Turn One, I was very close to Seb [Vettel], I went for the gap, I out-braked him and we went into the corner side-by-side. He gave me room, but we touched and the contact damaged my front wing.

“When the Safety Car came out, the team did a great job to change the nosebox and tyres. After that my pace was much better and I was able to push Seb, but it’s impossible to pass around here when the cars are so closely matched.


Lewis Hamilton Wins in Canada

Monday, June 14th, 2010

Lewis Hamilton had a superb weekend in Canada. Taking pole position on Saturday and then winning the Canadian Grand Prix on Sunday.

Lewis Hamilton’s comments after the race:

“It was an incredibly challenging afternoon, especially in the last 20 laps, when I was trying to look after my tyres while also keeping Jenson and Fernando [Alonso] behind me. It wasn’t easy, I can tell you that!

“This track is unique – you can never be too confident, because you really have to look after your tyres, and it’s so hard to know how long you can make them last. Fernando put a lot of pressure on me. We had a really good battle, but, although he was pressing me hard, I was able to pull out a small gap and then maintain it. It was such a sensational feeling to cross the line.
