After qualifying in P6 for the Miami Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton said Mercedes is not “necessarily moving forwards at the rate that we would like to”.

After a promising start to the Miami Grand Prix weekend on Friday, on Saturday Mercedes seemed to get back to the pace they had in the first four races of the season.

However, after a difficult Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton is happy to have qualified in P6.

“I had a much better qualifying session than I’ve had for the past three races so I am grateful for that,” the Briton said.

“I’ll take it. We will keep on chipping away. Keep working at it. There is so much amazing work going on in the background. Everyone is working so hard.

“Unfortunately I don’t think we are necessarily moving forwards at the rate that we would like to. The gap is similar to what it was at the start of the year.

“we just have to keep our heads down, keep working, keep focused and eventually we will get there.”

Asked about his chances in the race, Lewis said he isn’t sure what to expect.

“Difficult to say. It has felt generally better this weekend but today, I was able to get the tyres into a better place, it was feeling a bit better in qualifying.

“The race pace yesterday, I have no idea where we were,” Hamilton concluded.
