Lewis Hamilton finishes 5th in Singapore

September 25th, 2011

Lewis Hamilton’s comments after the race:

Congratulations to Seb on a great drive – he drove fantastically all weekend.

And well done to Jenson, too – he showed what was possible from our package by really getting the maximum out of it. He nearly brought home the victory too – so I’m encouraged that we can continue to challenge for wins for the rest of the season.

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.

Lewis Hamilton qualified 2nd at Monza

September 10th, 2011

Looks like it’s going to be a good race tomorrow! Can’t wait until the race!

Lewis Hamilton’s comments after Monza qualifying:

Clearly, we’re very competitive – Jenson and I both qualified in the top three – but Seb [Vettel] was mega-quick today. In Q1 and Q2 we were pretty close to him, but he pulled out another half-second in Q3. It was an extremely good lap.

Lewis Hamilton DNF in Belgium

August 28th, 2011

Unfortunately Lewis Hamilton didn’t finish the Belgian F1 race as there was a collision with Kobayashi. Up until then Lewis was having a good race. After overtaking Kobayashi, Lewis moved over back onto the racing line but unfortunately couldn’t see the speed Kobayashi had gained (he had less wing on the car) and he was moving to the outside or the circuit just before taking the corning they collided.

Personally I can’t say that it really was Hamilton’s fault. As a fan I’d have to simply say that Lewis was in front and he was going back onto the racing line after the overtake. The driver behind has to lift if there isn’t enough room on the track. Anyway, Monza next, should be awesome!

Lewis Hamilton’s comments:

It wasn’t as simple as just going from 13th to third today. At the start, somebody hit me at the rear and damaged a rear-wing endplate. At the exit of Turn One, there was debris everywhere, and somebody else’s front wing went through my front wing and sliced my right-side mirror off. I also had to make an early pitstop, so it was hardly perfect!

Lewis Hamilton finishes 4th in Hungary

July 31st, 2011

New site coming soon, if you’d like to write or contribute to the site please contact us.

It was an interesting race today with Lewis overtaking Sebastian Vettel early in the race and leading for a good part of the race. Unfortunately it didn’t quite work out for Hamilton as he went on to the intermediate tyre when it started to rain slightly – which soon stopped soon causing for another pit stop to change the tyres. Lewis also had to serve a drive-through penalty. After Lewis had a spin, he did a 180 to face the right direction causing Paul Di Resta to swerve around Lewis by going off the track.

Lewis Hamilton’s comments after the race:

Big congratulations to Jenson. He pushed me hard and he deserved to win the race. I felt sorry for the team that we didn’t get a one-two, but at least one of us got the victory.

Superb Lewis Hamilton Win in Germany

July 26th, 2011

Lewis Hamilton qualified very well on Saturday and drove a supreme race in Germany on Sunday. It was an exciting race from start to finish with Hamilton, Alsonso and Webber in the leading group of cars. The highlight of the race was Hamilton overtaking Alonso around the outside of turn 2!

It was a must-see action packed race. If you missed it then catch the highlights on BBC iPlayer now! (UK only)

Very much looking forward to next weekend’s race in Hungary!

Lewis Hamilton after the race:

Every win is special – but with all the emotion, effort and energy the team put into today’s victory, this one feels even more special than usual.

Coming into this weekend, I said I’d take things one race at a time. So to win today is massively positive for us, but there’s a long way to go and it’ll be about consistency as well as speed from here on in.

Lewis Hamilton qualified 2nd in Germany

July 23rd, 2011

Lewis Hamilton’s comments after qualifying:

First of all I want to say a huge congratulations to the whole team, who did a great job today. Everyone back at the factory and here at the circuit has been working massively hard, and that’s the reason why the car was so quick today. I think we all underestimated how good the car would be, in fact.

Lewis Hamilton finished 4th at the 2011 British Grand Prix

July 11th, 2011

Lewis Hamilton after the race:

“I could feel the home fans spurring me on”

Before the end, I had to start saving fuel: you have to lift and coast, which means the brake temperatures drop. So I had no brakes, and that’s why I kept locking up. That allowed Mark [Webber] to slip ahead of me and meant I was defending from Felipe [Massa] in the closing laps.

Lewis Hamilton finished 4th in Valencia

June 26th, 2011

Lewis Hamilton’s comments after the race:

I got a poor start and lost out to both Ferraris.

After that, it was a long race – the team asked me to stay out for as long as I could, and I was pushing all the way, but I struggled with oversteer and to be honest didn’t feel totally comfortable with the tyres.
