Lewis Hamilton says his car in Miami Grand Prix Sprint Qualifying “didn’t feel terrible”, but “we just have to accept it that for the moment, it was seven-tenths off”.

Mercedes had a terrible Miami Grand Prix Sprint Qualifying, with both of their drivers getting eliminated in Q2.

Although the poor results on previous weekends were often attributed to the team doing ‘experiments’, Lewis Hamilton says this time that was not the case.

“There have been no more experiments, it’s just been trying to make the car work,” the Briton said.

“I feel like we extracted everything from the car, and that is just the pace. We just have to accept it that for the moment, it was seven-tenths off.

“I felt really good in FP1, and then in [Sprint Qualifying], it didn’t feel terrible, it is just that we are seven-tenths off. That’s just the pace of our car.”

As for Mercedes’ chances in the Sprint Race, Lewis said.

“I think the Sprint Race is going to be tough, I mean we are in 12th, so I don’t expect a huge amount from there to be honest.

“It is not an easy circuit to overtake on or follow, so we will just try to step into the points if we can,” Hamilton concluded.
