Lewis Hamilton admitted that he ‘did not know what to say’ after being left disappointed by Mercedes’ performance in Friday practice.
The seven-time world champion suggested that his car felt drastically worse than it did in Austin last weekend, casting doubt on whether he will have the pace to challenge Max Verstappen.
“I don’t really know what to say,” he told Sky Sports. “The car is night and day different compared to last week.
“You just never know what you’re going to get with this one. Some days she’s great and some days she’s not.
“It definitely wasn’t a fun day compared to P1 in Austin. We were a bit off but hopefully overnight we can find something and tomorrow maybe the car will be nicer to drive.”
