Lewis Hamilton takes blame for qualifying mishap at Chinese Grand Prix

Posted : 20 April 2024

Lewis Hamilton took full responsibility for his lackluster performance during the qualifying session for the Chinese Grand Prix, where he failed to progress beyond the opening session, leaving him to start 18th on Sunday's grid. Despite finishing second in the morning's sprint race, Hamilton revealed that adjustments made to his car setup ahead of qualifying didn't yield the desired outcome, and he attributed his Q1 exit to his own error at Turn 14.


Reflecting on his mistake, Hamilton acknowledged his struggle to stop the car at Turn 14, leading to repeated locking, which ultimately hindered his performance. While expressing disappointment, Hamilton maintained a pragmatic attitude, recognizing that such setbacks are part of racing. He emphasized the unpredictable nature of the sport, where success and challenges often coexist due to the fine margins of performance in Formula 1.


Hamilton also highlighted the contrasting setup choices between himself and teammate George Russell, who qualified eighth for the race. Hamilton opted for significant setup changes in search of performance gains, diverging from Russell's approach. Despite the divergence, Hamilton remained optimistic and saw room for experimentation, even though the adjustments didn't yield the desired outcome.
