Lewis Hamilton: “I do know what I do not need” / F1

Seven-time Formula 1 champion Lewis Hamilton admits that young George Russell is doing better with the 2022 Silver Arrow. Hamilton is already thinking about the car for next season.

Lewis Hamilton is a no-brainer: He has repeatedly admitted that fellow youngster George Russell is better at handling the quirks of the Mercedes W13 than he is, and that’s reflected in the results – Russell has had a huge success in the top five finishes in the 2022 season and is now 34 points ahead The Hamilton in the average rating.

In a statement to the emirate, team principal Toto Wolff said: “We are slowly controlling classic porpoises, that phenomenon, that strait-jumping motion under full aerodynamic load. What we tested in Monaco is something different, it was just touching the car because we tried to drive the car to a lower level. Possible. With rigorous preparation as the 2022 cars require and with as many bumps as in Monte Carlo, it happens very quickly.”

Wolff and George Russell stress that there is a lot of potential in the car. In Monaco, Hamilton was asked if the idea of ​​reducing development in the 2022 car in order to focus more on the 2023 model was under consideration.

The 103-time race winner replied: “I haven’t thought about that yet. Because we first have to understand in detail what’s happening with this car before we think about next year. If we’re just starting, there’s a risk that something will go wrong.”

“Only when we fully understand why this car has certain characteristics do we get guidance on where the development process should go. But I know what I don’t want, and I’ve deposited that with regards to next year’s race car.”
