Hamilton: There's more work to do

Lewis Hamilton concedes his P5 in qualifying for the Brazilian GP was expected as he is "struggling."


The Mercedes driver has found himself unable to match his team-mate Nico Rosberg in this weekend's practice sessions as he battled to set-up his W04 for the wet.

And it was more of the same in Saturday's qualifying at the Interlagos circuit.

While Rosberg posted a 1:27.102 to qualify second, Hamilton could only manage a 1:27.677 which put him half a second behind his team-mate and down in fifth place.

"That's kind of where I thought I would be, considering," he told Autosport.

"I did my best out there but I'm struggling. There's not really much more I can say."

Hamilton reckons his chances in the rain have been undone by the lack of wet running in his first season as a Mercedes driver.

"When I was at McLaren, I knew the car.

"I was there for a long, long time and it suited me easier than the one I'm driving right now.

"I've just got to do some more work."
