With Mercedes still struggling to achieve their first win of the 2022 season, 1996 F1 champion Damon Hill gives his thoughts on the team’s chances in the final six races.
Mercedes has been struggling with their car’s performance for most of 2022. This led to the team still trying to achieve their first win of the season.
With six races left, Damon Hill gives his thoughts on whether a win is possible.
“Believe me when you’re in that situation in the sport, you know, the pressure is enormous from the media,” Hill said on the F1 Nation podcast.
“But we’re still asking the question Can Mercedes win race?

“Something will happen, we always get a crazy race somewhere between now and end of the year, there’s going to be a crazy race and Mercedes could well pick up that win.
“That would scupper Max’s chances of winning every single race to the end of the season. But we’ll see. There’s gonna be rain, one of them’s gonna be wet, Suzuka is going to be wet!”
Hill added that Mercedes and Ferrari could get closer to Red Bull by the season’s end, if the Austrian team decides to stop developing their current car due to their complete dominance of the championship.
“If they don’t do any more development now on this car, Ferrari and Mercedes will be all over them by time they get to Abu Dhabi,” the Briton concluded.
