Mercedes’ simulator driver Anthony Davidson says Lewis Hamilton “won’t give up” despite his team’s car troubles, and he’ll “carry on pushing the limits”.

Mercedes has been facing numerous issues with its 2022 car, which left Lewis Hamilton and George Russell struggling to keep up with the top runners in the first two races of the season.

The issues caused Hamilton to leave the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix Qualifying in Q1, the first time this has happened since 2017.

However, Mercedes’ simulator driver Anthony Davidson says ‘if anyone can bounce back, it’s Lewis’.

“Underestimate him at your peril,” the Briton told Sky Sports F1.

“He won’t give up, he’ll carry on pushing the limits and I think he went quite extreme with the car in qualifying in Saudi Arabia, trying to get what he wanted from it. In the race, he found his rhythm.

“I do expect Lewis to figure out what this car needs in terms of driving style. Of course he’s super adaptable.

“He’s been fast in any iteration of Formula 1 car that’s come along and there’s no reason why he won’t continue that in this current generation of Formula 1 cars. He just needs to find his rhythm.

“I feel like as time goes on, he and the team will work hard on it and turn this thing around,” Davidson concluded.
