Despairing Hamilton out of German GP qualifying

21 July, 2018, 19:45 | Author: Nicole Aguilar
  • The pole in a track record time of one minute 11.212 seconds drew a huge roar from the crowd on a damp day at Hockenheim

As the cars were being removed from their crates and prepared for Friday's practice session news came through that Lewis Hamilton had signed a new contract with Mercedes keeping him at the team until the end of 2020.

In the immediate aftermath of the British Grand Prix when being congratulated on his third-placed finish 38-year-old Raikkonen said in his distinctive robotic voice: "Obviously I did the best I could but there seems to be some opposite views on what I'm doing unfortunately, so we'll see".

The spokesman said it was important to stop the auto to prevent "heat soak damage" to the power unit as happened to teammate Valtteri Bottas during the race in Austria earlier this month.

"It just kept getting better and better, and I knew in the last lap I had more in me and I was able to squeeze everything out", Vettel said of his lap.

"All I can tell you is I still feel pretty great".

"I wasn't expecting to feel as excited as I am now in signing this extension".

He said: "If Jorginho moves to Chelsea , my agreement with Abramovich does not depend on Sarri becoming their next manager". Negotiations for the highly-rated manager's payoff have accelerated over the last 48 hours and are nearly completed.

But the Englishman's immediate future remains in a sport that has helped transformed him from modest beginnings in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, into a global superstar.

Asked if the other team was Ferrari, he said: "You can make whatever assumption you want".

With the extension, Hamilton could be in the hunt to match Michael Schumacher's seven world titles.

And Hamilton admitted the German's achievement is likely to be beyond his reach. Vettel suffered a spin at the hairpin after running deep under braking - an error made by a number of drivers - while Stroll ended the session with a more dramatic moment when he slid wide in the stadium section and bounced across the grass before rejoining.

"That's a dream, flawless scenario and nothing ever goes perfectly, generally. I'm going to work towards it".

Formula One championship leader Sebastian Vettel went out briefly toward the end, with heavy rain bouncing off his Ferrari, and was fourth behind the Williams vehicle of Russian driver Sergey Sirotkin.
