After qualifying in P8 for the Monaco Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton says he wants it to rain in the race and adds it would be “nice to have some luck for once”.

Lewis Hamilton qualified in P8 at the Monaco Grand Prix Qualifying, after his final run was cut short due to a red flag.

“It wasn’t looking too bad before [the red flag], but this sort of thing happens,” the Briton said afterwards.

“I do want it to rain. That’s going to make it a little bit better than if I was driving around in the dry in just eighth place.

“I was seventh here last year and I just drove around in seventh. It’s very hard to overtake here, so I’m hoping that the weather plays up and creates opportunities.

“Many people do different strategies and it will be nice to have some luck for once.”

Lewis added that although Mercedes has managed to significantly reduce porpoising, the car is still too slow for the frontrunners.

“[The car was] a bit better, but we seem to be slower. I don’t know, I feel like we’ve improved the car in terms of bouncing.

“We weren’t very good in the low speed [corners] in the last race. We weren’t actually in the race.

“I anticipate it will be difficult here,” Hamilton concluded.
