“I don’t think it’s about Q3,” he said. “I think it’s about the whole weekend and it’s the feel that I have in the car.
“I just need to work on it so I don’t think it’s really about my approach in qualifying particularly. But of course I’m looking at all solutions and I’ll get there eventually.”
Hamilton’s first run in Q3 was compromised because he started without a full charge in his battery because he aborted his last run in Q2 at the end of the lap.
“I just didn’t put the laps together,” said Hamilton. “The last couple of laps in Q3 particularly just weren’t strong.
“I had to go out early, because I had come in too early and I had a low battery pack and so I had to go out first, ahead of everyone and ultimately it just wasn’t a good enough job.”
