Lewis Hamilton said after Friday's F1 practice for the Australian Grand Prix that the set-up changes made during practice did not work, as the car was less drivable in the afternoon.
After the Briton lost to team-mate George Russell at the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, he took a jab at his younger colleague, saying he got lucky with the car's settings, as his similar parameters didn't pay off.
the seven-time world champion finished the first practice in second place behind Max Verstappen, and in the second practice, before the rain, otherwise on hard tires, he only set the thirteenth time.
"It was good in the morning, but not in the afternoon," summed up the Mercedes racer.
"The car was similar to the first two races, except that in the morning the feeling in it was a little better. Before the second training session, we made some changes that didn't work out, so we have to study them in the evening, and of course the rain didn't really help either."
Hamilton also pointed out the problem with crowding on the track, which will surely be prominent again, especially in qualifying. "Congestion on the track is always a big problem here, but this time it was even more pronounced in the first practice, when many racers had problems and drove slowly on the ideal line. I hope that this will not happen again and that we will not be in each other's way," he added.
