Korean GP - Post qualifying press conference - Pt.1

Definitely. It was quite a shocking session for me: didn't get a lap, did quite a poor job, struggled to get… when the tyres weren't so bad temperature-wise I just had a bit of traffic, locking up. It was very poor. But I'm very lucky that I got through.

Q:
We've seen various drivers going off at various parts of the circuit, particularly down at Turn One. Is that still a concern for you? You've been off there a couple of times as well.

Lewis Hamilton:
I've been off there a lot this weekend yeah. It's like these guys have ABS brakes – when we attack the corners it's very easy to lock-up, so it's quite tricky. We have to try to work around and sometimes you just have to drive with flat-spots. But fortunately my tyres from that lap, I didn't have any lock-ups, so hopefully that will remain the same throughout the race.

Q:
And what sort of confidence for the race itself?

Lewis Hamilton:
Well, I didn't do a long run yesterday, again I had not a great session, particularly in P2 yesterday, but Jenson did a great job and quite a competitive long run, so I hope I'm able to do the same tomorrow.
