Lewis Hamilton hits out at Sky Sports pundit Paul di Resta over ‘myth’ surrounding Mercedes chassis swap after he outqualifies teammate Valtteri Bottas for the French Grand Prix in second behind rival Max Verstappen

Lewis Hamilton hit back at Sky Sports pundit Paul di Resta for peddling a ‘myth’ ahead of Saturday’s qualifying session for the French Grand Prix. The implication appeared to be that Hamilton’s old chassis was a differentiator. Given the quality of our engineers’ work, all the cars are exactly the same.’. ‘We are just struggling to get the car in the right window and it is proving tricky. ‘It has been a really, really hard weekend, mentally, trying to get the car into a happy place,’ said the Briton. Mercedes were making adjustments on Hamilton’s car up to 10 minutes before the session began, just as they were in Baku a fortnight ago. There is a chance of rain here and that may contain Hamilton’s best chance of success.
