Mercedes racer Lewis Hamilton has expressed his admiration for the performance of teammate Valtteri Bottas in qualifying for the Grand Prix of Abu Dhabi.
In the course of the weekend four-time world champion was faster than the Finn, but in the third segment suddenly yielded him in the dispute for pole position.
“What is the range in the performance of Valtteri! – quoted by Hamilton BBC. – He had an incredible qualification, which I congratulate him. I put my all into, but a little lost tempo during training. In any case, Bottas were great. Congratulations!
I think during the final attempt I played time on the first turn, but in the fifth and sixth lost everything. Overall, however, this year we were incredibly fast in qualifying, I got a lot of fun.”
