Upon completion of training in Bahrain, Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton congratulated his teammate Valtteri Bottas with the debut pole position in career.
Valtteri Bottas took the first pole position of his career, ahead of Lewis Hamilton
The British lost Finn elusive 0,023 seconds, and tomorrow will start the race from second place.
“First, I want to congratulate Valtteri, Lewis said. – He’s worked really hard, great team and today was faster than me. He was the best. I take off before them a hat.
I knew that drove a great first lap [in the third qualifying segment]. I looked at the screen, saw that he had lost quite a bit and thought, “wow, that was a great lap, Valtteri has done a great job.”
I lost time on the first sector, which was my weak point. Valtteri, in its turn, passed the first sector. In the second and third sectors I showed a good time, but in the aggregate lost to him quite a bit.
It was a great battle. That is such spectacular and needs to be qualified. These battles make us play better.
Overall I’m pleased with his work. The team also got a great result in first and second place.”
