Hamilton: 'I was off to a good start' at Suzuka

Lewis Hamilton may have missed pole at the Japanese GP following the red flag caused by Daniil Kvyat while the double world champion made his second attempt. The Briton, who won in 2014 at Suzuka after starting from second position behind his teammate Nico Rosberg, believes he had an opportunity to improve his performance.

“It doesn’t really matter anymore, but I was off to a good start in my second round », explained the Championship leader at a press conference who missed pole for the second time this season. “I lost a little time during my first attempt, especially in the last part of the circuit. Nico (Rosberg) is performing well this weekend. In any case, I'm relieved that Kvyat is okay. »

Lewis Hamilton will look to gain the upper hand over his teammate as soon as the lights go out. “The race promises to be difficult. It will depend on the conditions. The start will be crucial because it’s hard to follow each other here and overtaking is difficult.”, said the pilot Mercedes.
