Vettel was ‘untouchable’, says Hamilton
London: British Formula One ace Lewis Hamilton has admitted that reigning champion Sebastian Vettel was ‘untouchable’ in Saturday’s qualifying session for the Italian Grand Prix.
Vettel, who holds a commanding points lead in the race for this year’s title, posted a fastest lap of one minute and 22.275 seconds.
Hamilton was almost half-a-second adrift in second place.
“Seb was mega-quick. On that last lap, that was untouchable for me. But it is a long race and I’m sure we will be able to finish high up,” a leading daily quoted Hamilton, as saying.
“I just hope things turn out better than in the last race,” he added.
Hamilton’s teammate Jenson Button and Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso will share the second row for the race today.
Mark Webber and Felipe Massa will complete the third row ahead of Vitaly Petrov.
The Mercedes duo of Michael Schumacher and Nico Rosberg and the Renault of Bruno Senna round out the top 10.
