Hamilton: we have the pace to win the race

Despite the good result in the qualifying for the Spanish Grand Prix, the Brit hopes to be able to threaten the leading duo.
“I am very happy and thank the audience for their support.” said Lewis Hamilton to F1TV. “I’m grateful to be among the first drivers in qualifying, everyone at the factory has been working hard and now we can see our steps forward and fight with these guys. I didn’t expect us to be in contention for pole position, but I’m grateful to be here. This is a credit to every individual in the factory, from those who designed the parts to those who produced and brought the car into a racing machine that I hope we can fight with the drivers in front. George Russell did a good job so hopefully we can put some pressure on these guys up front.”
