Lewis Hamilton says Mercedes is “still the best team”, and will “get back to having” races like the Sao Paulo Grand Prix more consistently in 2023.

After a spectacular 1-2 victory for Mercedes at the Sao Paulo Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton was asked in what areas was the W13 especially strong.

“I really don’t know, if I’m honest,” the Briton said.

“It’s a strange feeling, because we definitely have taken steps forwards. But it’s almost like the others kind of fell off a little bit this weekend, maybe? I don’t know.

“But the car had been really great to drive all weekend – very consistent, very smooth, no major issues. And, yeah, we didn’t bring any upgrades to the last race or this one.

“So I think we’re just slowly starting to understand the car more and more and get it working in a sweeter spot.”

Lewis was then asked how important this result was for Mercedes, heading into the F1 winter break.

It is the most important thing for us to have this result. This is a massive boost to the whole team’s morale. Going into the winter, the team knows that we’re on the right track.

“And we are still the best team. We will get back to having this more consistent I think next year.

“And I’m excited for that battle,” Hamilton concluded.
