Hamilton pinpoints key area for improvement after summer break

Hamilton pinpoints key area for improvement after summer break

Lewis Hamilton has identified one key area of his race weekend that he needs to improve upon in the second half of the 2019 season, saying he must do better in qualifying.

The five-time world champion has been in superb form again this campaign and has won eight out of the opening 12 races, with team-mate Valtteri Bottas and Max Verstappen of Red Bull both winning two each. The Brit leads the championship by 62 points, putting him on course for his sixth driver’s title.

However, he reckons he can still further improve after the August summer break by ensuring he puts himself in the best position possible for winning on the Sunday of a GP weekend by gaining better qualifying results.

"There's always things you're able to learn from these races," said Hamilton.

"Even though the last one was pretty strong there are still areas that can be better – for example, qualifying is still not perfect yet and so I've got to work on that.

"It's the same approach I've always had. I just take it one race at a time."
