Q: Lewis, we’re used to seeing tiny margins between the two of you but it’s a relatively large margin this time. Tell us about what happened in your Q3?
Lewis HAMILTON: Not too much, really. Nico was extremely quick today. I did the best I could. Our guys did a fantastic job to rebuild the car after I binned it so a big thank-you for their hard work. Yeah, just today, wasn’t really feeling it. Don’t know why. It was still fast but Nico was fantastically fast today. But tomorrow’s the day when you get the points so I’m looking forward to all the different tricky weather that perhaps will come.
Q: And you mentioned a little bit of a vibration at one point as well...
LH: Yeah, I generally had that throughout the whole run. I don’t know if that was following the incident but maybe it was just the tyres imbalanced maybe but it didn’t get in the way of the result.
Q: And was it difficult to have to get back in the car and immediately be on the pace after this morning’s accident?
LH: No. That’s the way it is, that’s what we’re trained to do.
Q: Lewis, when it comes to weather we’re expecting tomorrow, have you already set the car up for those conditions because obviously it’s going to be in parc ferme?
LH: No, because we set it up for qualifying today.
Q: So not for the race itself, not with a wet set-up or a huge amount of wing?
Q: Lewis, on your last lap, I think, you locked the brakes at the hairpin. Was that a crucial moment when you lost out to Nico?
LH: No, I don’t think so. I don’t think I lost any time with it. I just wasn’t quick enough today.
