Lewis Hamilton says he has “1,000% confidence in the guys back at the factory, who are stringing together all these pieces of the puzzle”.
Mercedes has been struggling with its car’s performance for most of the 2022 season, however, Lewis Hamilton is optimistic about the team’s progress.
“It’s always complicated,” the Briton said.
“But I would say… look, we’ve been very strong in the past, we’ve won world titles, our communication continues to improve.
“We’re holding more meetings, and breakout group conversations. And I’m trying to just help give as much feedback as I can about what I’m feeling in the car and what are those limitations where I could gain time.
“These will be things that they won’t be able to see in the data, that the driver is able to bring to it. So, working closely with George also on that.”

Additionally, Lewis is sure that Mercedes will be able to challenge the top teams next year.
“There is potential in the cars: we’ve got downforce, it’s just in some places it we’re not able to utilise it. And ride quality, of course, is an area that we can always be better.
“So I’m comfortable with the direction that we’re going, and have 1,000% confidence in the guys back at the factory, who are stringing together all these pieces of the puzzle.
“And have no doubt that we will be back in a fighting position next year,” Hamilton concluded.
