Hamilton to concentrate on execution
24 June 2014 – Lewis Hamilton has said he will be concentrating on capitalising on his 'good pace' at the British Grand Prix next week.
Hamilton put his woes in qualifying behind him to storm back from ninth on the grid to second in Austria on Sunday, but with Nico Rosberg winning, the Englishman conceded another seven points to his team-mate in the title race and now lies 29 points back.
"There is not much more I can do, I have got good pace and I just need to execute it. I will work hard to make sure I do that," he told ESPNF1.com following round eight in the 2014 Formula 1 World Championship.
"I am always learning lessons, and it is always good to remember the points that I have lost by not finishing. A gap of 29 points, even though I have not finished as many races as I'd like… there are still a lot of races to go. There are a lot of positives to take from this weekend [in Austria] and I had a lot of pace this weekend. I didn't capitalise on it but I will take that into the next race to make sure I do."
Meanwhile, Hamilton has also claimed he had intermittent power issues in the race at the Red Bull Ring on Sunday.
"I easily had the pace [to beat Rosberg] but my power was dropping and his wasn't, so I need to investigate what that was. We are always trying to manage power, so perhaps it could have been a bit more optimal," added the Mercedes driver.
