Japanese Grand Prix: Lewis Hamilton says Mercedes’ DRS use not a good idea

Hamilton did so, but said it was “more complicated” when it put Sainz on his tail after the Ferrari passed Russell. “It made it very hard for me the last couple of laps,” Hamilton said. Russell was on a one-stop strategy on fading tyres trying to maximise his finishing position with Hamilton and Sainz on fresher tyres with more grip after doing a two-stop race. Hamilton said: “I didn’t think that was a good idea at all. The incident happened in the closing laps of a race in which Hamilton and Russell had raced hard wheel to wheel in the first stint in the race disputing position. Hamilton said: “I was definitely aggressive but it was good racing.”.
