After that, Lewis Hamilton was very frustrated, and the sprint game was of course very important to him.
He added that Friday’s qualifying session was fun, but that game might not be very entertaining, and the British suggested that he maintain a certain re-adjusted sprint format.
He said: “Every point is important, but I am very happy to finish the game and we will fight again tomorrow.
“They are too strong, I can’t catch him.
“Their engines did a great job, they started very well, and we lost some performance at the start.”
