Pilot Mercedes Lewis Hamilton was satisfied with the results of the first day of racing weekend in Mexico.
In the second exercise, the British showed the second time, having conceded only to Daniel Riccardo.
“It was a good day, even though he did not start very well, because in the beginning of the second exercise I on the first lap went into the turn, Lewis said. – I seriously hurt yourself. But a simulation of qualification and race pace segment was probably the best in my career.
I can’t remember the last time I managed to drive 26 laps with this stability, except for race.
We got plenty of information. In the second exercise, when it became warmer, we began to feel the track better.”
Valtteri Bottas showed the best time in the first session, the second session was the sixth.
“The first session went well. I enjoyed staying on the track – said the Finn. – For the second session we made some adjustments in settings, but they were unsuccessful, so at the end of check-in we went back to the original version.
In addition, I had problems with the tyres in the second practice. That’s why I was not able to show a good time like in the morning. But I think it was a good day and look forward to qualification”.
