first_imgThe Mercedes driver admitted that the death of an actor who succumbed to colon cancer at the age of 43 hit him hard on Saturday morning.“Each round was getting better and better. We did a lot of great work in the background. Today, it’s a very important pole position for me because I woke up with the sad news of Chadwick’s death. It has been a very difficult year for all of us, and this report really broke me. I want to dedicate this pole position to Chadwick, “said Hamilton.“It was not easy to concentrate. I knew I had to go and do it perfectly, because what he did for superheroes shows all the little kids what’s possible. He shone. Wakanda forever, “he added.Hamilton did not even use the help of a windbag from his teammate Valtteri Bottas on the flat to gain pole position, although he could choose to go first or second.“I chose to go first. I wanted to be in the fresh air and not take care of the riders in front of me and keep my distance from them in the last turn. I didn’t want anything to get in my way, it worked.“As you can see, some are very fast in the first and last sector, but they don’t have such a good middle section of the track. We were not the strongest today in the first and last (sector), but the means was very good. ”Bottas lost half a secondValtteri Bottas took second place with a loss of 511 thousandths of a second. He narrowly defeated Max Verstappen of the Red Bull, who was 15,000ths behind him.“Everything looked pretty good in the qualification itself. Only on the first try in Q3 did I brake to the first turn. I don’t think I warmed up the tires enough in the warm-up lap, “said Bottas.“It simply came to our notice then. I may not have had the best first turn, but it was good. Otherwise, the bike was nice and clean and I really felt like I was riding at the limit. But it is quite a big loss. I don’t know how yet, but Lewis did a good job today, “he added.“I don’t bother too much because I know that the second position is actually quite good for the start. It’s always quite an interesting run into the fifth turn, I’m looking forward to tomorrow, “Bottas recalls the opportunity to ride on the Kemmel plain behind Hamilton in a windsock.last_img
