"This is the first time I've pushed an engine like that", said Hamilton after he was handed a fresh engine for the race having started from the pitlane.
Despite starting from the pit lane after crashing in qualifying, Hamilton battled to a fourth place finish in the Brazilian Grand Prix on Sunday (12 November) and insisted his was the kind of performance that might soon be a thing of the past given the emphasis on preserving engines. "That sucks. Sprinting is what we are missing in F1", Hamilton said. We should be able to push more. "It was nice, normally you're managing it [all the time]". I often turn the engine down and they keep telling me to turn it up and I'm like "No, no, I prefer it down and I'll figure out a way to catch up in another way".
Drivers who use more than the allotted number of engines face grid penalties, such as those imposed on Daniel Ricciardo in Brazil, which has resulted in drivers taking a conservative approach. Fernando Alonso and his McLaren teammate Stoffel Vandorne have been hit with a combined 355 penalty grid places so far this season, while Renault-powered cars have racked up 330 penalty grid places. "But if you look at the front guys they were managing and that is generally what we are doing at the front, so I don't think that's too exciting for people to watch".
"If you look at the most exciting races, particularly when it rains, we don't have those limitations". So how do we provide that for the future?

It also called on state police to release its high-speed chase policy, which the agency also did Tuesday. Police said Morgan was able to steal the vehicle, ditching it in Providence.
From next season cars will be heavier because of the introduction of the "halo" driver cockpit head protection system.
"The auto is going to be a bus next year, it is going to be so heavy, like a Nascar (stock car)", Hamilton added.
Under the current rules drivers are restricted to four engines per season in an effort to cut costs. "So heavy. The braking distances get longer, the brakes are always on the limit, and I know it sounds negative but as a racer who wants a fast, nimble auto that I can attack every single lap, unfortunately that's not what we generally have".
