"On Sunday, I hope it's going to be dry. I want a dry race and a dry qualifying. This is such a great track to drive in the dry. It's a very tricky circuit to drive in the wet."
Despite the difference in lap time and on vastly different compounds, Hamilton warned: "I'd just say don't take too much from it.
"Everyone's doing something different out there in terms of wing, and fuel, and engine, and all this kind of thing, but we got through what we needed to get through."
After taking pole in memorable fashion last time out for the Styrian GP, demolishing the field by over a second in the extreme wet conditions, Hamilton could be forgiven for wishing for the rain to fall again.
But the Briton added: "It was great in the rain in Austria. It's a little bit different here. We have higher downforce but the track seems to be a lot more slippery, so if it is a wet qualifying, it's not going to be like last week.
"However, who knows, maybe I'll do a decent job again."
