Pilot Mercedes Lewis Hamilton believes that the German team is significantly inferior to Ferrari in the efficiency of use of the Pirelli rubber.
At the Grand Prix of Australia Lewis took a successful start and was leading the race, but after the wave of pit stops yielded first place to Sebastian Vettel, finishing second in the end.
Sebastian Vettel brought Ferrari their first victory of 2015!
“In the beginning of the race we banal could not tear himself away from Sebastian, – quotes Hamilton AUTOSPORT.com. – We tried to follow the plan, but in the end it didn’t work.
It is obvious that we are losing the efficient use of rubber. We need to add in this regard.
We will do our best to improve the situation in the future.
I think today could be better. I can’t say I’m happy with this result. You need to understand that we began to compete under the new rules.
We can be proud that struggled to win in Australia, losing quite a bit.
Great to see at the top of Ferrari. I think this is a big plus for sports, because at the top there is competition.
I think that could win this race if we did something differently, but for my part, I did everything I could. In any case, it is impossible to win everything.”
When Hamilton asked for clarification about what the team could do better, he replied: “I can’t tell you. There are a lot of aspects. We need to work on team things.”
