Lewis Hamilton says he wants Mercedes to “have a car capable of fighting for victory from the first race” of the 2024 season.
At the last race in Canada, Lewis Hamilton said Mercedes should start switching their focus from their 2023 car to their next year’s challenger.
While talking to the press in Austria, Lewis reiterated he is now firmly focused on 2024.
“Of course I want to develop the car as much as possible this season, but my eyes are clearly already on 2024,” he told Belgian broadcaster RTBF.

“I want us to have a car capable of fighting for victory from the first race. I don’t think we absolutely have to focus on a victory this season.
“The majority of our efforts must be concentrated on next year and on the fact of being able to race at the front, to be competitive, to compete with the others.
“When a team is one, two or three months ahead of you in terms of development, it’s impossible to catch up with them during the season.
“And I don’t want to chase after the others again next season. I don’t want to play hunter for another year,” Hamilton concluded.
