Post-qualifying press conference - Spanish GP - Pt.2

Following on the question about Nico beating you in qualifying, Lewis do you feel somehow disappointed to having been pipped by Nico again?

Lewis Hamilton:
No. Sometimes you get beat, sometimes you get ahead. It's the name of the game and at the end of the day he was quicker today and it just means for me that I have to work harder. Simple.

Q: (Sarah Holt – CNN.com)
Hallo everyone: Lewis, you in particular seemed to be fastest in the final sector, as did you, Nico as well, that's where the Mercedes seemed to find its time which is interesting because it's the slower part of the track. So that might bode well for Monaco, perhaps, but what about this track tomorrow, which might suit the Red Bulls more which are faster in the first two sectors? Talk about tomorrow and Monaco if you like.

Nico Rosberg:
I don't think you can understand something from that for how it's going to go in tomorrow's race in terms of degradation and race speed. Of course it is an interesting thing to have a look at and OK, it's definitely not a bad thing for Monaco to be quick in that last sector with all the tight corners and last year we had a very good car in Monaco, I think the fastest of everybody, so I'm looking forward to Monaco, but in general we have to really play it low because it's always great to be in front on Saturday but then if you're not able to win on Sunday – which has been our issue and our weakness, has been our race pace, so we need to be very careful and just try and do better than the last race. Last race, I think Lewis managed to finish fifth and the target is to be a bit better than that.
