Hamilton confident despite losing pole to title rival Rosberg

BY Adam Cooper • November 22, 2014

Lewis Hamilton is adamant that he's not disappointed after being beaten to pole by Nico Rosberg in Abu Dhabi.

Hamilton qualified second, and if he stays there, he will still win the title.

"I generally didn't have the best of laps but it was still a really good qualifying session, I really enjoyed it," he said. "The car was fantastic.

"I'm not particularly disappointed with it. Of course you always want to be on pole, that's what we work for. I've had very good pace throughout practice and particularly the long runs which is comforting and then in Q1, Q2 was good, Q3 just wasn't.

"I didn't really put a comfortable lap together but it wasn't really lots of mistakes or anything, it just wasn't a great lap. Nico did a great job, but we're still there for the fight tomorrow."
