F1 Expert Exposes Lewis Hamilton's Major Problem At Chinese Grand Prix

The British born driver has struggled in his Mercedes since arriving in China and he ended final practice more than 0.8secs off his team-mate Valtteri Bottas.

Bottas set the pace and was 0.392 seconds from Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel in the last session before qualifying - but it's just not happening for Hamilton.
According to Ted Kravitz, it's all down to an issue where the five-time world champion just can't get his tyres warm enough before his flying lap.
"What on earth is happening to Lewis Hamilton?" Kravitz asked ahead of qualifying on Saturday morning.
"I'll tell you what's happening, he can't get the tyres warmed up correctly on the out-lap.
"When he tried doing his qualifying simulation in final practice ahead of this session, his tyres were still cold going into turn one.
"That meant his grip was nowhere near what it needed. 
"He lost so much time in the first sector. By the time his tyres were up to temperature, it was all too late and he lost the time. A hot out-lap is the key for Lewis Hamilton."

The final practice session was called off early on Saturday when rookie Alex Albon's Toro Rosso ran out wide from Turn 16 and skidded off into the wall.
The British-Thai emerged from the crash unscathed but the damage had already been done with his car unable to be salvaged before qualifying. He will start from the back of the grid on Sunday.
Toro Rosso later issued a statement on Twitter confirming their man had been checked over by medics before being given the all-clear.
They wrote: "Following his precautionary checks after the heavy impact in FP3, @alex_albon has been given the all clear from the medical center #ChineseGP."
