Lewis Hamilton says he is happy that there are only two more races in 2023 and then he can say goodbye to the Mercedes W14.

After a difficult Sao Paulo Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton was reminded by reporters that there are only two races left where he will have to drive the Mercedes W14.

“Thank God! Yes, it [sounds good],” he said.

Lewis then gave his thoughts on the race.

“It didn’t feel as disastrous as yesterday. Yesterday I literally had no tyres left, they were worn to zero.

“I feel like I drove a better race today in terms of managing the tyres to the best of my ability.

“But the car, there’s moments it works and moments it doesn’t, and it’s so inconsistent through the lap. So we have to figure out what that is.

“Then also we are really slow on the straights and at least sliding the car through the corners. So one to forget but hopefully there’s lots of learning from today.

“One thing the car is really unpredictable. In a sense of one weekend it feels good, one session it feels good, and then not.

“I’m sure we will go and look at things and find things we should have done differently but with the one [practice] session it’s difficult.

“But I’m still proud of the team, they still came here and did their work, they hold their head up high and that’s what we have to continue to do. Just keep pushing forward.

“Two more races with this thing… Hopefully no more driving it,” Hamilton concluded.
