After topping Abu Dhabi Grand Prix second free practice, Lewis Hamilton gave his opinion on both Friday’s practice sessions.

Lewis Hamilton has a good Friday ahead of the final race of the season. Although he managed only P3 in FP1, in FP2 he topped the session, more than six tenths ahead of second-placed Esteban Ocon.

All in all the Briton was happy with how things went.

“It’s been a relatively decent day,” Hamilton said.

“I like the changes they made to the track. I think it’s made the track much more enjoyable, much more flowing.

“It’s close between us all, but yeah, we got through our sessions. It’s still a bit unknown in terms of pace, but I’m sure it’s gonna be super close, like it has been in the previous races.”

Lewis says the team will now do all it can to perfect the setup ahead of Saturday’s Qualifying.

“It started off good, then got a bit worse in P1 and then started off better in this second session with some changes we made.

“Now we’re just gonna crank through the data and try and figure out how we can improve, where we home – the target always is always moving.

“I think we’ve made some positive steps setup-wise, so we’ll try to perfect it tonight and come back out tomorrow,” concluded the seven-time champion.
