Lewis Hamilton says in 2022 he “felt more growth this year as a man, in terms of internal strength, than I have in many other years”.

In a year-end interview on Mercedes’ official website, Lewis Hamilton said 2022 has been very tough for the team and for him personally.

“It’s been a very hard year for everyone,” the Briton said.

“For me, it’s been challenging in ways that I wasn’t expecting, but I am incredibly grateful for that.

“I have felt more growth this year as a man, in terms of internal strength, than I have in many other years.”

Lewis also agreed with Toto Wolff’s statement that 2022 has been the most important season in the team’s history, because we learn the most from the challenging times.

“If you look back at the team’s entire history, it was here a long time before Toto and I joined and they had some really difficult years,” Hamilton said.

“Some of the people have been here for over 20 years and really been through the thick of it.

“I would say for our current team, in terms of the last 10 years, this has been the toughest year for everyone along with the most strengthening.

“There has been so much resistance, so much we have been up against, and I am thankful that we have.

“There are many people working here, along with many new people in the team, and this experience has been good for them too.

“When we win, there is a different gratitude now because it happened so often before,” he concluded.
