Pilot Mercedes Lewis Hamilton commented on his debut pole position at Suzuka.
Lewis gave the competitors a chance, setting a new lap record at Suzuka at around 1.27,319.
“It was a great day and a fantastic round, Lewis said after qualifications, when he interviewed Jenson button. – You were quick here, Nico [Rosberg] was quick here. Earlier at Suzuka, I couldn’t manage to find the right balance of the machine, so skill on this track I couldn’t do it.
I finally left behind all the problems with the balance because the engineers and mechanics did a great job. I should note that the car at Suzuka is simply unmatched. It would be nice if you felt it.
Honestly, every year I became less likely to win the pole position here, and I did everything possible to win the qualification. Valtteri [Bottas] drove a great circle, but on the starting grid he will get fined. However, he will have the opportunity to win on Sunday.
We have worked hard over the machine. I hope it will show itself in the race.
S-shaped turns Suzuki kill tires. I want to believe that tomorrow all of us will be successful.
Of course, the pilots Ferrari will also show my speed as always, but we will try to leave behind.”
