The Briton, at the Belgian GP driver’s parade, conversed with F1 journalists Rosanna Tennant. Tennant caught hold of the Mercedes man during the parade to ask him a particular question. The question, which seems odd in the beginning, was about Hamilton’s whereabouts after yesterday’s qualifying session.

However, Hamilton’s reply gave us an insight into the level of dedication of the Mercedes man. Tennant asked, “Tell me, how late were you here last night? When did you finally get home?” To this, Hamilton revealed, “I think 12:30.” 

Upon further questioning on the late shift, Hamilton added, “Trying to figure out how to win.”

“Still working on the theory and constantly just trying to make sure there’s no stone unturned basically today. We can maximize, but obviously, you can’t change anything overnight, but still lots of learning.”

“The weather’s beautiful here today and we have a great crowd here, so I’m really excited for the race. I really hope we can somehow challenge the guys ahead, but we’ll see,” he added.
