It wasn’t a superb weekend for Lewis.
I think it basically was down to Qualifying 3, where Hamilton didn’t manage to show his real speed for various reasons (traffic/blocked, not enough runs, red flag etc., whatever it was down to, it wasn’t helping).
Not starting from where he should have started (most likely pole or there about) can’t be good – especially Monaco. So this situation can be frustrating.
Anyway, I think Martin made some objective comments after the race (below). Also he was saying that Lewis apologised to the race stewards afterwards about the ‘joke’ comment (this fact has most likely escaped most reporters or maybe it’s simply not dramatic enough for them to report.
Looking forward to the next race.
Lewis Hamilton after the race:
It’s been a disappointing weekend, really.
This afternoon, in the race itself, I made some strong moves on three drivers – Michael [Schumacher], Felipe [Massa] and Pastor [Maldonado] – and I got penalised for two of them.
