"Super-hard tires are a disaster, so it was not to drive," Hamilton said after the workout.
When asked what he meant by disaster, this British rider added: "A disaster for the ride. The difference of two seconds, and do not last long.
"I do not know why they took the tire, because I think the others quite well. It looks quite difficult to start and then end it.
"I think we are slower about two and a half seconds with a tire that. Then, we replace it with a normal soft tires and turned out fantastic. I think you'll see most people with a tire that during this weekend."
Similar disclosed Hamilton's teammate, Jenson Button. According to him, the harder compound tire performance makes shock.
"It's hard, really hard," said world champion 2009. "This is the first time I used it, and I think the other series we did not wear them because we are trying to make a long distance with the actual hard tires. So, this makes a little shock."
