Hamilton apologises to fans, blames FIA for boring FP3

Saturday, 27 october 2018, 11:44 , by Matthew Scott

Lewis Hamilton apologised to fans after the third practice session ahead of the Mexican grand Prix saw teams forced to wait for the track to dry before running, pointing the finger at the FIA for refusing to allow teams an extra set of tyres.

Rain on Saturday morning in Mexico City left the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez circuit damp, but not wet enough for teams to run their cars with intermediate tyres fitted.

It meant a wait of over 30 minutes for any on-track action – during which time Hamilton took to his Instagram page to update his fans.

    This tyre situation is very bad for the sport. Not enough Wet Tyres in USA. Now no running for half of FP3. True fans at the circuit are not being respected. FIA need to sort it out before next year.

    As usual, he'll get hate for being right, an extra set of wet tyres wouldn't hurt.
