Lewis Hamilton bemoaned his bad luck in Suzuka that saw him suffer first lap damage and retire laps later.


Fighting for position at the front of the pack at the start, the Mercedes driver and Sebastian Vettel made contact with the German's front wing slicing through Hamilton's tyre.

Limping back to the pits, he put on fresh rubber and returned to the action only to pit again on lap nine with "data showing abnormal readings and high rear brake temps."

Hamilton parked it.

"It was just really unlucky," the 28-year-old told the BBC.

"I feel bad for my guys - they work so hard. And as a team we deserve better.

"It's a shame.

"I had the best start I have had all year - such a good feeling, so really disappointed but that's life."
