Anything possible, says Hamilton

McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton (9/2 Monaco GP outright) has insisted anything is still possible ahead of the Monaco Grand Prix after coming fourth in qualification on Saturday.

It was a dramatic qualification session on the famous F1 circuit, with Mercedes’ Michael Schumacher recording the fastest time but he will start the race in 6th place after his penalty following the Spanish Grand Prix earlier this month.

Red Bull’s Mark Webber (13/8 Monaco GP outright) was second fastest so he will start in pole position for the race on Sunday, with Nico Rosberg of Mercedes in second place.

Hamilton enjoyed much better pace than his McLaren team-mate Jenson Button, who failed to make the Q3 stage of qualifying and will start in 12th place in Monaco.

Having finished in third, Hamilton is looking forward to taking on Webber and Rosberg, on a track which is not renowned for overtaking.

He told Sky Sports F1: “Anything is possible.

“It’s going to be so tough with the two guys ahead, they are very quick, and [I’m] very, very fortunate that Michael has his penalty. But he did a great job today and it was great actually to see Michael performing so well.

“I have no idea how tomorrow’s going to go. I hope the weather stays good but if it rains a little I’ll be grateful for it.”
