The result resulted in exercises and Balta, who also enjoyed being a leader in the Q1 section.
– The yellow flag destroyed my day. I could have afforded to improve, but I didn’t get a chance. This is disappointing, the pace has been okay this weekend, Bottas said in a TV interview after the session.
Points will be awarded tomorrow. Bottas leaves there full of fighting spirit.
– Before the weekend started, we thought it was impossible to overtake. But now we have seen a wide track offering different lines of travel. Hopefully it will allow Lewis to be bypassed.
Hamilton praised Bota
Pile driver Hamilton was naturally happy with his number one box. After a tough fight, the man would praise Bottas at a press conference.
– Hitting Valtter is always a big challenge. He’s been fast through the weekend. I made a lot of changes to my settings to cover him up. I enjoy these battles against him.
