Lewis Hamilton could give no explanation for Mercedes struggling in qualifying for the Chinese Grand Prix.

The four-time champion topped the first and second practice sessions, but ended in P4 in qualifying, after a poor run in Q3, which saw him abandon the race.

Mercedes boss Toto Wolff feels the car is suffering from tyre issues, but Hamilton does not believe there is a clear answer at this stage.

 

“The car felt OK but I don’t really have the answer for it,” Hamilton said.

 

“I think it’s in the top three of the easier tracks to overtake. The Ferraris are too fast on the straight so it will be interesting.

 

“It’s a lot hotter tomorrow so it will be a challenge to see if we can keep up with them.

 

“I don’t know if we can challenge – we were half a second behind today. We were quicker in the last race but they were able to hold on and will probably do the same tomorrow.”
