Lewis Hamilton said he could not be happy with his fourth place at the Italian Grand Prix, having started from the front row of the grid.
The McLaren driver lost two places at the start of the race and was stuck behind Michael Schumacher for several laps, unable to pass the German, who has much faster on the straight with the Mercedes. Hamilton was pleased to get some points in the end, but admitted dropping to fourth was far from ideal.
"It was not a great result. I started second and I fell back two places," said Hamilton. "I'm definitely not happy, but that is motor racing.
"I'm happy that I finished and got some points for the team so that's a good step. I'm OK. We got some points and I finished the race so I can't complain, really."
The Briton claimed he was slower than Schumacher even when he had his DRS open on the main straight.
"I was too slow on the straights. I was just stuck behind him. He was very fast on the straight. He was as fast if not faster than me when I had my DRS engaged on the straight."
