Hamilton disappointed with qualifying

By on Saturday, October 6, 2012

Lewis Hamilton expressed his disappointment after setting only the ninth fastest time in qualifying for the Japanese Grand Prix.

Hamilton was upbeat on Friday, but a set-up change ahead of qualifying left him floundering at the bottom of the Q3 shootout.

"Today’s qualifying session  was one of the most disappointing of my year. To be honest, I went the wrong way with the set-up and ended up with too much understeer. Until quali, the car had felt great all weekend, but I just couldn’t make it turn this afternoon, and as a result I just couldn’t extract the best from it", he said.

"You never know what’s going to happen in tomorrow’s race. It’s going to be a struggle, but I’ll be pushing my hardest with the set-up I’ve got, and I hope that, through good tyre management, I’ll be able to overtake some of the cars in front of me."

"I’ll be trying to get as many points as I can tomorrow."
