It is not usual for English Lewis Hamilton make mistakes. That is why he was surprised by the gross mistake he made in the Grand Prix of Emilia Romagna, the second date of the World Cup F1When he ran off the track while trying to outrun a group of stragglers.
“There was only one dry trajectory. And I think I was in too much of a hurry to pass everyone ... ", he acknowledged after the competition that was held at the Imola circuit and with the rain as the main protagonist.
However, he was lucky ... maybe the famous luck of the champion. While trying to get his car out of the bed of leca, something he did reverse, the crash between his Finnish partner Valtteri Bottas and English George Russell (Williams) forced the race to stop with the Red flag.
That minimized the consequences of the error, since in the second part of the competition he managed to recover, advanced to second place and set the lap record, which allowed him an extra point. And thanks to that unit he kept the first place of the tournament by the minimum difference over the Dutchman. Max Verstappen (Red Bull), winner of the race.
But before that comeback and while waiting in the pits, he was worried. "I was trying to overcome the feeling of anguish you have when you make a mistake to move on and learn from it quickly," explained the champion, that from what was seen in the first two dates, he will have to put everything of himself and much more if he wants to extend his reign.
