Hamilton urges drivers to work together in Q1

Lewis Hamilton believes that drivers must work together if they are to reduce the influence of traffic during the first segment of qualifying for this weekend’s Monaco Grand Prix.

The twenty minute session promises to be a headache for drivers, with limited opportunities to get into the next session.

As a result, with team bosses failing to agree to split the first segment of qualifying in half, Hamilton believes that drivers must work together to ease the congestion and give each other clean laps.

“I don’t know what’s going to happen but I’m going to hope that everyone is respectful,” Hamilton is quoted by Autosport. “Clearly everyone wants to get a lap for themselves, but hopefully we’ll all get a lap.

“We managed to do it today, so it’s not impossible. But a lot of people will have laps messed up and it will be very difficult out there. We have a drivers’ briefing and we’ll try to work together to make sure we all do the best job we can.”
