After qualifying for the Sao Paulo Grand Prix in P5, Lewis Hamilton says “the conditions and circumstances at the end of Q3 have maybe put us slightly further back”.
“P5 is never going to feel that great,” the Briton said.
“I did the best I could though and hopefully we will have a better race on Sunday.
“The car was showing signs of decent performance, but we did seem to be a couple of tenths off the guys right at the very front.

“We made a few changes ahead of qualifying and it did seem to make the car a little nicer to drive. In general though, it wasn’t particularly fast.
“Having said that, the conditions and circumstances at the end of Q3 have maybe put us slightly further back than our true pace would have showed.
“It is difficult to say with any confidence though. Over the rest of the weekend, I think we’ve got a bit of a battle on our hands.
“Overheating with brakes and managing tyres will be important but if we can use our strategy to progress forward, then we will do that,” Hamilton concluded.
