Lewis Hamilton : « A long time that I was waiting for »
Lewis you have taken your first pole at Monaco . How do you feel ?
It’s been a long time that I was waiting for. I can’t express how happy I am. It was not the easiest session of the season. I had a lot of things that kind of throw you off your rhythm. I did not have the rhythm until the two last laps. I am really happy with this pole. This is incredibly special for me and for my guys.
You join Ayrton Senna among the poleman at Monaco . Is it an important achievement in your career ?
I don’t feel like a milestone, but it is definitely an important day for me. Some years I have had the car to do it, but some things have got in the way. I have got a long way to get what Ayrton achieved here. I have finally done it and I am really happy about that.
Have you done the hard part taking the best time today ?
Only even half of the job is done. There is so much to do tomorrow. There is a long way, because there are many laps here. It is going to be mentally and physically challenging. I am looking forward to tomorrow.2006 in GP2 was the last time I started on pole here. It is a very special day and just thank you to the team.
