“It wasn’t the easiest of races,” said Hamilton. “I had a lock up into Turn Five, which started to give a bit of a vibration and then one into the last corner.
“The tyre temperatures were slowly dropping, no matter how much you were pushing. As you lose rubber, you start to lose temperature in the tyres.
“It was a bit of a struggle. I was a little bit nervous that we might have a scenario like Silverstone with that right front [tyre] towards the end so I was nursing.
“It looks like the tyre’s got plenty of rubber on it, so maybe it was fine and I was all worried for nothing.”
Hamilton will continue his title charge next week as the relentless 2020 F1 season takes the Brit and his rivals to Monza for the Italian Grand Prix.
