Hamilton worried that Ferrari “works everywhere”

Hamilton worried that Ferrari “works everywhere”
British driver Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes), who will start fourth on the Chinese Grand Prix tomorrow, said this Saturday that he is concerned that the Ferraris are behaving so well on all tracks while his car has uneven days.
“For some reason, your car is working everywhere (…) It is very strange. You go to Bahrain, where it is very hot, and we would expect Ferrari to be strong, but they are even stronger than we expected, ”the driver told reporters.
And then, added the four-time world champion, “we come here” to China and they do it well too, “their car works everywhere.”
Still, he assured, this is not the time to think about the Ferraris but to try to “understand why we don’t have the rhythm.”
After setting the best time in qualifying today, the leader of the championship, Sebastián Vettel (Ferrari), will start tomorrow from pole, accompanied by his teammate, the Finn Kimi Raikkonen.
Despite the fact that Shanghai is one of Hamilton’s favorite circuits (he is the rider with the most victories, five) and despite the fact that he dominated on Friday in free practice, he will finally occupy fourth position tomorrow, preceded by his partner, Valtteri Bottas.
The Finn posted a time of 1: 31.625 today, while the four-time British world champion did 1: 31.675, 580 thousandths more than Vettel, also a four-time world champion.
Hamilton said he does not understand how his car has been “night and day” between Friday and Saturday.
The Briton will race tomorrow with the pressure of cutting the lead that Vettel has, 17 points, and will do so starting on soft compound tires, slower but with less degradation. EFE
