Lewis Hamilton says “we’ve won the last eight world constructors’ titles, I have every bit of faith in my team and engineers that we will get there”.
Mercedes’ 2022 season is definitely not what Lewis Hamilton had hoped for, but the Briton says he does not find the difficulties demoralising.
In fact, Lewis says he loves doing the work to get Mercedes back to the top of the field.
“I don’t see it as a chore,” Hamilton said.
“I genuinely love the work that we are doing regardless of whether we are fighting for first or wherever we are fighting for.
“I still love getting in a huddle with the engineers and the mechanics weekend in and weekend out.
“I love having these back-to-backs because if you have a crap weekend like that then you can get back on it quickly.

“I still just love every day the challenge of fighting this car because you get in and there’s a fight.
“The amount of engineering that we have to do to try to dial it in is tricky and I would say that probably just increases your accessibility to improve your engineering side. So I’m enjoying that.
“I don’t ever wish time by so I don’t want to wish that the season goes by quicker. There will be a lot of information to gain in this second half of the season.
“As a driver, I want to figure out how I can improve and make sure that things like the last race don’t happen.”
Lewis says he is now focused on providing the team with the right feedback, so that next year’s car can be off to a good start.
“Right now, I’m just really focused on trying to articulate what I’m feeling in the car, what I want in next year’s car and making sure it gets done because it all moves so quickly.
“They’ve already got to sign off the brakes or the front suspension now, the gearbox gets signed off now. Everything gets done so far in advance.
“So it’s about making sure you catch them before they sign off those things and get things in the pipeline that maybe in the past we’ve not had time to really focus on to give us a better foundation for the future.
“I’m enjoying it and we’ve won the last eight world constructors’ titles, I have every bit of faith in my team and engineers that we will get there.
“Just with the cost cap and the wind tunnel time, it’s not as simple and easy as it was before but that doesn’t mean we can’t get there,” Lewis concluded.
