After qualifying in P3 for the United States Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton says Mercedes has “taken a bit of a step closer” to the frontrunners.

After getting P3 in United States Grand Prix Qualifying, Lewis Hamilton said he loves racing at the Circuit of the Americas.

“I love being in the States,”

“This circuit is just incredible. It’s one of my favourites – right up there with Silverstone. It’s a legendary layout that every driver finds tricky. It’s bumpy, incredibly challenging each section.”

This weekend Mercedes introduced an upgraded floor for the W14, and Lewis says it definitely made their car better.

“I really do appreciate their efforts. Unfortunately, they are still a little bit ahead but we will give it another shot tomorrow.”

Asked if he can challenge for the win on Sunday, Lewis said:

“I’ll give it my best shot. With this crowd, anything is possible,” the Briton concluded.
