Lewis Hamilton addresses extra advantage ahead of Saudi Arabian Grand Prix


Lewis Hamilton has addressed his secret advantage heading to this weekend’s night-time Saudi Arabian Grand Pri after he has won the most night races in F1. Hamilton has achieved 16 wins at night-time events since they were introduced to F1 at the end of 2008. 

He was asked if Hamilton had a “secret” when racing at night or just “work differently” in the evenings.

Hamilton said: “Yeah I pretty much am nocturnal yeah. I don’t think so, we probably all do the same. I don’t really notice a huge difference from day to night. I guess just temperature and track surface is different, is probably the only thing.

“Night races are awesome, especially when the track cools it makes it a little bit easier for us to do what we do in terms of making these tyres which struggle to last on the hotter tracks. I think I’ve just been fortunate that we’ve hit the sweet spot for most of the night races.”

“There’s a number of reasons why I think we were struggling. I think we had more wing on compared to the Red Bull and Ferrari. The Porpoising issues aren’t helping things either as we are just crashing into the floor as opposed to skating along on top of the surface.

“We will have to wait and see but I don’t think it’s purely down to the power unit.”
