VIDEO: Hamilton bruised following accident, but feeling okay

Jul 19, 2014, 11:30 AM EDT

Following his huge crash during qualifying for the German Grand Prix today, Lewis Hamilton explained to NBCSN’s Will Buxton what happened after his brake failure, and how he is feeling following a high-speed impact with the wall.

The Briton had been looking to secure his first pole position since the Spanish Grand Prix back in May, but spun off at turn eleven when his front-right brake disc failed.

After the crash, Hamilton was taken to the medical centre for a routine check-up, where he was found to have nothing more than some bruising. He admitted that the crash did hurt quite a bit, but he is feeling okay and will be able to race tomorrow at Hockenheim.

However, he is preparing for a difficult race from 15th on the grid, and conceded that Mercedes may even have to start him from the pit lane, depending on the work that needs to be done to the car.

    How much longer do we need to put up with David Hobbs stupid comments ” Hamilton will find it hard to pass Danny Kvyat” FYI – Rosberg was 1.5 seconds faster then Kvyat

      Hobbs has been around a very long time and has an acid wit at times.

      I find his statements entertaining and his opinions his own,some I agree with some I don’t but as an adult,you are allowed to ignore the comments Hobbs makes that you don’t agree with.

      I hope we have ‘to put with” David Hobbs for a long time to come.

    Everyone is entitled to their opinion. Kvyat has been driving well so Hammy may have his work cut out in the race getting by depending on how everyone’s car works without the FRIC systems. Qualifying times vs. race pace can be far different in turbulent air.
