Lewis Hamilton says the Sao Paulo Grand Prix is Mercedes’ best remaining chance for a race win, because “Abu Dhabi with those long straights will be difficult”.

Ahead of the Sao Paulo Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton gave his opinion on Mercedes’ chances this weekend.

“Honestly, every time we arrive at a track, we’re surprised one way or another,” the Briton said.

“Either by how big the gap is or how close we are, so I won’t know until tomorrow where that is.

“I don’t know if the car will be spectacular here, I don’t know if we’ll be as close as we were last race – I don’t think we will, but I hope we’re surprised and that’s not the case.

“We kind of know where our car is going to work and which corners it won’t work in, so I anticipate it’s not going to be the easiest on track, but there’s weather, there’s all sorts that could come into it.”

However, Lewis thinks Mercedes will have a better chance to compete for the win in Brazil, than it will in Abu Dhabi.

“My focus is maximising the next two races. I think us as a team is focused on making sure that we have a car that we can compete with next year.

“Out of the next two races, this is the best option we’ll have, or the closest I think we’ll be.

“I think Abu Dhabi with those long straights will be difficult,” Hamilton concluded.
