Hamilton: It was a good race to watch

Lewis Hamilton admits he was happy with his performance in Abu Dhabi after a mechanical failure saw him watch most of the race from the sidelines.


He did the business on the Saturday as he qualified in pole position and then looked comfortable during the opening stages of the race as he build a handy 3.4s lead over Kimi Raikkonen shortly after the deployment of the Safety Car.

However, things went horribly wrong on lap 21 as his car lost power and he was forced to park the MP4-27 and retire.

Hamilton admits the car was a "dream" to drive, but he refused to dwell too much on his DNF and set his sights on the final two races in the United States and Brazil.

"I hadn't been faultless in this race because I did have a very wide moment at one stage but after that it was going really well and the car was a dream to drive," he said.

"I was cruising and pulling away so it was a shame the engine just died. It was some kind of fuel problem but it was an incredible race, good to watch.

"We hadn't brought any upgrades and hopefully we'll have some for the next race. I hope the car performs over the next two races to finish up the front for the last time. I'm happy with the job I did, I couldn't have done any more."
