There have been several years in which Lewis Hamilton has reigned supreme in Formula 1. However, since the British driver lost that heart-stopping race on the last lap of the Abu Dhabi GP against Red Bull Max Verstappen in 2021, the Mercedes driver has not lifted his lead. Her head is in the single-seater sport.
Although F1 fans know Red Bull Racing has reinvented itself, puncturing the future thanks to the advantages available to Verstappen, the Mercedes engineering team is trying to keep up with the competition.
Last Sunday Hamilton completed a podium finish at the British Grand Prix, but despite taking four places on the track, the nickname ‘Hummer’ insists on Mercedes’ lack of competitiveness.
Let’s remember that the Englishman has not won since the penultimate date of 2021 and the drought has reached 33 races. So, from the Silverstone Autodrome, the athlete spoke.
“It’s definitely been an up and down season and the last year and a half. We have a lot of work to do (…) I think I know exactly what we need to do and we have to have some serious conversations about what we’re going to do in the future,” stated the pilot.
The relationship between Mercedes and Hamilton is not a problem, as the same British sportsman has said on several occasions that he will remain firm with the German patent. However, not winning races was already starting to cause a “buzz” for Lewis.
This information was put on the table by the British media BBC, who managed to interview Anthony Hamilton, the father of the seven-time Formula One winner.
In the Q&A space, the father talked about a possible €250,000,000 agreement between Mercedes and Lewis Hamilton.
Similarly, according to the British portal, Hamilton had also requested an ambassadorial role with Mercedes in the future.
