Lewis Hamilton has been on fire throughout all the practice sessions. It looked like Lewis had the car hooked up perfectly and was going to have a blinder. He led all practice sessions by around half a second.
In qualifying Hamilton also looked supreme and continued to be on top in Q1 and Q2. Unfortunately in Q3 there was a bit more traffic on the second run (Alonso was about 2-3 seconds in front) and he didn’t manage to quite hook the lap up perfectly. Nevertheless, it’s great to see Lewis back fighting at the front. I’m really looking forward to tomorrow’s twilight race in Abu Dhabi!
Lewis Hamilton’s comments:
It would be nice to have had pole position, but that Red Bull, as always, is very quick in Q3! Still, we’ve got our car to a point where it works particularly well on certain tracks, and we always seem to go well here.
