Lewis Hamilton thinks he made a mistake by deciding to take the F-duct off his car for the Italian Grand Prix.
Team mate Jenson Button used the team’s regular rear wing with an F-duct while Hamilton used a much smaller rear wing without an F-duct. He said:
I?óÔé¼Ôäóm a little bit disappointed ?óÔé¼ÔÇ£ it would appear that we took the wrong route by running without the F-duct this weekend. I just didn?óÔé¼Ôäót have the downforce today, and the car was sliding in the corners ?óÔé¼ÔÇ£ I couldn?óÔé¼Ôäót push any harder because the car just wouldn?óÔé¼Ôäót give me any more.
For tomorrow?óÔé¼Ôäós race, I?óÔé¼Ôäóll have good top speed, but the car is going to be sliding through the corners, so I won?óÔé¼Ôäót be able to follow closely enough through the corners to try and pass, so it?óÔé¼Ôäóll be tough.
But I have to congratulate Jenson on doing a great job. Today wasn?óÔé¼Ôäót my best qualifying performance of the season, but we?óÔé¼Ôäóll still push like crazy tomorrow and fight for some good points from the third row. It looks like it?óÔé¼Ôäóll be a tough race.
He will start behind Button for the fifth time year.
