Lewis Hamilton says Mercedes knows “how to build a world championship fighting car”, and for him it’s “just trying to support them in the best way I can”.
While Mercedes’ 2022 car definitely wasn’t what Lewis Hamilton and the team wanted or expected, Lewis thinks next year’s challenger will be a significant step forward.
“For sure I’ve got to try and continue to gee everybody up, make sure we leave no stone unturned so that next year, we arrive, and we can fight for positions that we deserve to be fighting for,” the Briton said.
“I think what we always have to remember is this is a team, there are people at this team that have been here over 20 years and delivered eight titles since I’ve been here, and more before.

“They know how to build a world championship fighting car. For me, it’s just trying to support them in the best way I can.”
Lewis went on to say that he has no doubt that next year’s Mercedes will produce a better car next year.
“I think for us we know what the problems are with this car. I believe that we as a team, we’ve not gone from being world champions to not being able to build a good car.
“I have no doubt that we’ll have a better car next year. Whether or not we’ve rectified every issue that we have this year, we’ll find out when we get there,” Hamilton concluded.
