Asked whether he would likely sustain similar issues with his car at the next street race in Baku in a fortnight's time, Hamilton replied: "Not if I can help it."
He then pertinently added: "There will be some tough discussions that I'll have with my engineers tonight or maybe after the weekend because there are things that should have been done but haven't done.
"We'll learn from it and we'll come together stronger in the next race."
Pressed on whether he could expand on that comment, Hamilton replied: "I can't really, no.
"From my point of view, a little bit frustrating. It is what it is and we just have to...I can't really say too much about it. I don't want to be critical of the team but behind closed doors, I will be and we've got to work harder."
