Lewis Hamilton says he hasn’t been able to put his “best sectors together yet” in Monaco Grand Prix FP2, but “the grip feels pretty good when we’re pushing”.

Lewis Hamilton didn’t have the greatest of Fridays in Monaco, finishing FP2 only in P12. Unfortunately Mercedes’ car is again experiencing increased bouncing, but Lewis says it’s of a different kind.

“The car was bouncing quite a lot today on the bumps,” the Briton said.

“Not the aerodynamic bouncing like we’ve had so far this year, but just because we’re running it low to the ground and stiff as well, so we’re bottoming out quite a lot.

“We improved the car for FP2, and we’ve got some studying to do tonight to find the right mix between ultimate performance and a driveable balance.

“I haven’t put my best sectors together yet, and actually the grip feels pretty good when we’re pushing.

“Ultimately, I think we’ve got the potential to be up there in the mix; maybe not quite on the speed of Ferrari and Red Bull, but I hope we can be ahead of everybody else tomorrow and on Sunday,” Hamilton concluded.
