Lewis Hamilton says Mercedes doesn’t need a technical structure shakeup like McLaren recently had, and adds the two teams’ situations cannot be compared.
After years of struggling to return to the top of Formula 1, McLaren has recently undergone a major overhaul of their technical structure.
When it was suggested to Lewis Hamilton that maybe Mercedes needs the same thing, Lewis said the two teams’ situations cannot be compared.
“Well, you can’t compare us to McLaren, we’ve won eight world titles in the last 10 years,” the Briton said.
“McLaren is like an old home for me, it’s old family, so I’m always looking to see where they are and hoping they figure things out and become the team they once were, the team I know them as being in my earlier days and before then. So I hope whatever restructuring they’re doing is good.
“We’re still a world championship-winning team, we’ve got amazing people who have been with us on that journey.

“We always need to hold ourselves accountable, each and every single one of us. We all need to look at how we go about things and how we do it better.
“There’s not a single person in the team that thinks they have done everything right and that they couldn’t do things better, and everyone’s just focused on correcting that and learning moving forwards collectively, and improving our communication and improving how we process things.
“That’s a huge thing for me, because if you’ve got a group of people who are just super stuck in their ways and don’t change, then you will just stay in that area of being noncompetitive.
“But these men and women are very open-minded, that’s inspiring for me to see the courage that they have, and I know that we will get there,” Hamilton concluded.
