Early tire puncture dooms Hamilton in Germany


Lewis Hamilton’s Formula
One German Grand Prix was
ruined by a puncture he
picked up after driving
through debris left by a
first-lap accident.
Hamilton had to drive a full
lap back to the pits with a
rear puncture, and dropped
well down the order. Despite
aero damage, he showed
some good speed, but the
team eventually elected to
retire his car.
“My second-lap puncture
was incredibly unfortunate,”
said Hamilton. “There was
debris scattered across the
full width of the track, and I
didn’t have any option other
than to drive straight
through it. What’s more
frustrating is that, at the
time, I was the eighth car
through — so to be the one
to get the puncture is just
cruel luck.
“It was immediately clear
that my car didn’t feel the
same after the puncture.
However, after a few laps, I
was able to adapt my
driving style, and the car
had good pace during the
middle stint. However, with
the damage to the rear, I
think we were lucky to get
that far, to be honest.”
Hamilton said he enjoyed
being able to mix it with the
leaders when he was
lapped.
“At least I was able to have
some fun out on track — my
pace was good enough to be
able to match the leaders
during the middle stint. And
that’s encouraging for me,
because we know our car’s
been genuinely quick this
weekend. A big thank-you to
everyone back at the
factory for all their efforts
to get a lot of new parts
onto the car this weekend
— every little bit helps, and
we know there’s even more
in the pipeline.
“We’ll put that pace in our
pockets and take it to
Hungary next weekend. I’m
back in the car in five days
time — and that’s the best
possible news for me after a
day like today.”
