Rosberg pinpoints why Hamilton was “really down” after qualifying
Hamilton struggled for pace in qualifying, being out-qualified by his teammate George Russell for the second race in a row. He complained about a lack of grip and had difficulty getting a competitive time on the board. Nico Rosberg, who competed against Hamilton for the championship in 2014 and 2016, commented that Hamilton seemed to struggle after the second qualifying session and that a slight imbalance in the car can cost a lot of time. Hamilton appeared disappointed and still dislikes being behind his teammate. He is currently fourth in the F1 drivers’ championship, trailing Fernando Alonso by 12 points. Alonso will start the race tomorrow from 10th place.
