Formula One News » Hamilton: Good speed and not “eating up the tyres too much” Posted on 22/03/2013
Lewis Hamilton believes Mercedes will have the speed come Sunday afternoon at the Malaysian grand prix as he believes the car has good speed and is isn’t “eating up the tyres too much”
“We had quite a good long run in this session so we don’t think we’re eating up the tyres too much,” said Lewis Hamilton
“In the first session we did chew up the tyres a bit but that was mostly due to the set-up of the car, we had a very oversteery set-up.”
“When we did the long-run, it felt pretty strong.
“It felt quick and better than it did in the last race and fingers crossed it will be.
“We have taken a step forward on long-run pace but the others look pretty quick as well so it’s difficult to judge where we are.
“The Lotus looks really quick and it’s not until after I analyse the laps that I can judge how good ours was.”
