After finishing the Azerbaijan Grand Prix FP2 in P12, Lewis Hamilton says Mercedes “tried something experimental” on his car, and “it didn’t feel that great”.

Mercedes’ troubles seem to be continuing in Baku, with George Russell only in P7 in the second free practice, while Lewis Hamilton was even further down in P12.

After the session Lewis revealed that Mercedes has been experimenting with his car.

“Tyres feel, to us, they feel like they’re working well,” the Briton said.

“No issues with starting the lap. I just can’t really tell you where 1.6 seconds or 1.3s, or whatever it is, [has gone]. That’s a long way away. A lot of it’s on straights.

“We tried something experimental on my car [for FP2] and it didn’t feel that great, to be honest, but at least we tried it and got data on it.

“Now we’ll go through it and hopefully for tomorrow we’ll probably revert back to what we changed,” Hamilton concluded.
