F1 2013 – Hamilton sure Mercedes will figure tyre woes out

Formula One News » F1 2013 – Hamilton sure Mercedes will figure tyre woes out

Lewis Hamilton is sure his Mercedes team will sort out their tyre issues after their disappointing performance at the Spanish grand prix.

Hamilton said “I don’t understand what it is – it’s obviously the tyres,”

“It’s something to do with how you prepare the tyres, or use the tyres, or something like that. It seemed to work quite well in Bahrain, but didn’t in Barcelona, so it’s something we haven’t quite caught on to just yet. But it’s nothing to do with me as a driver. It’s about what we do before we get in the car.

“In the race there was no grip. I was just sliding around on all fours, just tip-toeing around. It didn’t matter whether I went slow or fast, it didn’t do anything different. It was very, very strange. One of the strangest feelings I’ve had for a long time.

“We had a long discussion about it afterwards and we just have to understand what went wrong and how we can improve it for the upcoming races.”

“I don’t know why it’s taking us so long to really grab hold of this problem. It’s not rocket science,”

“Ferrari and Lotus have done it, and we just need to do it, and I’m sure we will at some point.

“If we all pull together, which we have been doing all year, but now is more important than ever, particularly after a race like the one we had.

“We need to take a step back, look at what happened objectively, and try to figure it out.”
