Lewis Hamilton’s Candid Admission: ‘No Gentlemen’s Agreement, It’s Every Man for Himself’ – What Led to This Statement?

However, both Lewis Hamilton and Lando Norris backed the idea that there has never been an actual “gentleman’s agreement” in F1. Hamilton, who secured pole position, acknowledged that while drivers try to be respectful, in the heat of the moment during qualifying, everyone is panicking to get their laps in.

Norris, from McLaren, echoed the sentiment, saying that drivers leave big gaps to the cars ahead to find clear air, but that can sometimes cause problems for themselves. He emphasized that in those situations, everyone is looking out for themselves and trying to get their laps in.
