Lewis Hamilton qualified 5th for the Singapore GP. The Briton was not satisfied with his performance and believes that he must do better. Although the day before this, Lewis had great optimism, it seems that 'things changed overnight'

He is aware that if they want to fight for the very top, a lot of things need to be changed. "Clearly we had a really great package here,” Hamilton said, as quoted by crash.net! “The car was feeling incredible yesterday and there was so much hope that with some tweaks, we could challenge the Ferraris.

One of the cars was able to do that and I wasn't today. We made big changes overnight and it got away from me again. I was just so slow today”.

However, Hamilton does not lose his optimism and expects that "today" will be significantly better for him and his team.

George Russell has excellent chances to make a good result, but he will have to be focused and maximally prepared. Mercedes is in huge trouble. It is necessary for them to make changes that will lead them in the right direction.

However, the question arises whether it is too late for such changes. The race in Singapore will give us many answers. “So it’s definitely disappointing but tomorrow is a new day,” Hamilton said. “I really hope George gets a great start tomorrow and puts some pressure on those Ferraris.

It would be great for him to get a win." Max Verstappen will do his best to stop his rivals and continue his dominance. Although the race for the title seems to be over now, it will be interesting to see which drivers can be in the Top 3. A few names are in play, but a lot will depend. We hope for excitement until the very end and a great atmosphere.
