Hamilton takes qualifying slut on his cap

Lewis Hamilton nodded, the voice was silent. The probably six-time Formula One World Champion was not looking for excuses, he found the reason for Austin’s disillusionment with himself.

The car was good enough for the first series, but I just didn’t make it today. This is my fault,”said the Mercedes pilot, who only starts from fifth place in the United States Grand Prix (20:10 clock).

Mercedes Motorsport Chief Toto Wolff proved quite helpless about the unusually weak cut off of his star pilot, who has stood more often than anyone else in Formula One history.” With an aggressive strategy you can still win, but that wasn’t Lewis’qualification, very unusual. We need to find out what was going on there,”said Wolff.

At the same time, the Austrian was proud of the performance of his second pilot Valtteri Bottas, who apparently has not yet stuck to the team member in the almost lost World Cup fight. Turning to the pole position of Bottas, Wolff said: “He was not at the front on Friday, but now he has the car so arranged t hat he really likes it. This shows that the boy simply cannot be defeated.”

Place eight gives Hamilton the title of the World Cup

The Promised One underlined his determination to do his utmost to postpone the World Cup decision once more by winning.” I try everything. It is my aim to postpone this further. I’m sure Lewis wants to win, just like any of us,”said Bottas.

However, Hamilton no longer has to shine on Sunday. Already rank eight is enough for the British to set up the World Cup crown on their own. If Bottas does not win, the 83-time Grand Prix winner does not even have to reach the goal for the title win.

In the previous 18-season races Hamilton was only in Hockenheim ranked as ninth place eight. On the other hand, there are ten victories and a total of 15 podiums this season.
