Lewis Hamilton finishes 4th at Monza

September 11th, 2011

Lewis Hamilton’s comments after the race:

It was a good race: I finished and I got some points, so I can’t really complain.

At the restart, Michael [Schumacher] was on my outside; I was looking at him in my mirrors, then, all of a sudden, the guys ahead had gone, so I missed an opportunity to slipstream Sebastian [Vettel]. So they caught me napping.

We were a little bit slow on the straight today, which meant it was hard to get past Michael, who was faster along the straight even when I had my DRS activated. I had to really fight Schumacher, but the fact that I finished ahead of him meant everything was okay. That’s racing.

The support we’ve had in Italy – the weather, the fans – has all been incredible and I’m really looking forward to coming back here again next year.

I doubt it’s still possible to beat Sebastian for the title, but we’ll keep pushing. For now, I’m looking ahead to the flyaways – they’re going to be exciting and I’m really focused on getting some more wins for the team.

    Good result considering the circumstances last race. Im impressed with the level of maturity shown. And your priory is right; finishing races is most important. Keep your composure and I expect out braking micheal on the inside of the race line, should get you past him. Congrats and look forward to see you finishing another race.
