After a dramatic Saudi Arabian Grand Prix. seeing terrorism on the first day of practice and Mick Schumacher in a 170mph crash, Lewis Hamilton has been knocked out of qualifying before Q2, resulting in a P16 start for tomorrow’s race at Jeddah.
The British driver said the following about his performance:
“Just struggled with the balance of the car, it’s not where we want to be.
“We’re professional, we lock out whatever it needs. Just unfortunately we went the wrong way with the set up.”
Now fans have had the chance to react to the disappointing outcome. Let’s take a look.
Lewis Hamilton said that he may start from the pitlane tomorrow, so he can make some big changes to the setup of his car to make sure the car "doesn't handle the way it just did. He told journalists that "I had no rear end, the rear was so loose." #F1 #SaudiArabianGP

Lewis Hamilton out in Q1, which means he cannot compete in Q2. And the most important implication of this is that he cannot compete in Q3. pic.twitter.com/Hf8Z1Oe569
