After the Singapore Grand Prix FP1&2, Lewis Hamilton says “you’re just bouncing so much that you just have a headache all of the time”.

Lewis Hamilton managed to top the Singapore Grand Prix first free practice, but in FP2 he fell back to P5. The Briton says he just didn’t get a clear lap in the second session.

“It started off well,” Lewis said.

“It wasn’t as great in the second session but pretty much like every other weekend, I would say.

“The car is as it is and is bouncing around like crazy but it doesn’t feel like we’re massively off this weekend.

“We’re still probably a second off or something like that but we’ve just got to keep working on it. There’s not really much that we can do with the bouncing, it just is what it is.

“But set up-wise, I think George was able to find a little bit more time. Definitely, on my side, there was more time in it.

“We just didn’t get a clear lap and I think with the set-up I had, I had a lot of locking. We’ll fix it tonight and give it a better try tomorrow.”

The Singapore is traditionally very tough on drivers, but Lewis says the main problem now is the bouncing.

“I definitely felt a little bit dehydrated after that session and very hot, but the biggest problem is not the physicality side of it.

“It was literally just that you’re bouncing so much that you just have a headache all of the time and this is a very bumpy track.

“If you just watch the onboards and see my helmet, I don’t have any fillings anymore. I lost them earlier on in the year,” Hamilton concluded.
