Lewis Hamilton Fastest in Chinese 2010 Free Practice Session

Friday, April 16th, 2010

Lewis Hamilton posted the fastest time in the 2nd free practice session in China with 1m 35.217s, followed by Mercedes GP’s Nico Rosberg with 1m 35.465s compared to Jenson Button’s 1m 35.593s. Michael Schumacher was 4th in the second Mercedes on 1m 35.602s. The two Red Bulls of Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber completed the sub-1m 36s runners with respective times of 1m 35.791s and 1m 35.995s.

Lewis Hamilton’s comments:

We may have topped the timesheets in each session, but I don’t necessarily think today’s times make us the favourites for this race. The car does feel good, but our pace looks pretty similar to some of the other cars on long runs.

Everyone talks about us having a straight-line advantage, but that’s not true – other cars have the same speed as us at the end of the straight. We’re a little bit quicker than some teams, but, equally, they’re able to run more downforce. It’s about getting a good balance – and we feel we’ve got that.

We’re continuing with the good feeling we felt in Malaysia, but we’ve made some further subtle changes and they were encouraging. I come out of today with a positive feeling – we’ll now keep our heads down and concentrate on gaining a strong qualifying position tomorrow.

Japan Free Practice

Friday, September 28th, 2007

This weekends Formula 1 Grand Prix race will not be at the usual location, Honda owned Suzuka, but at the Toyota owned Fuji Speedway.

I heard the track isn’t as exciting as Suzuka – but let’s wait and see how the race is before making up opinions.

The McLaren’s seem to be fastest so far – but it’s difficult to say as the fuel loads of Ferrari & co. are unknown.
