After a run of problems and bad luck for Lewis Hamilton, he has finally managed to produce a great result, with P3 at the Canadian Grand Prix.
Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff says, his results so far in 2022 were not a reflection of his abilities, but a consequence of “bad luck”.
“There were a lot of races that worked against him where he could have scored a podium or a much better result,” Wolff said after the race.
“It was not his wrongdoing, but bad luck, and seeing him now on the positive side and being on the podium without anything being gifted, that is good to see.”

The Austrian then said the team was very happy with their performance in Canada, but they are not letting their guard down.
“We are all very happy. We have scored five podiums this year and we have seen glimpses of the performance that we have, but it is far away from our own expectations of ourselves.
“You need to take a podium as a good result, especially on merit, and I am happy for Lewis because he was really disadvantaged in some of the races where the safety car went against him.
“So, everybody is in a good space, but there is still lots of work to do,” Wolff concluded.
