Lewis Hamilton says his current success with Mercedes is not bittersweet, because “leaving on a low” would be “kind of bittersweet at the end of the season”.

Lewis Hamilton is leaving Mercedes at the end of 2024, so after he won the British Grand Prix, he was asked if this makes the victory feel ‘bittersweet’?

“No,” the Briton said.

“I think when we started the season and we had a car where we weren’t going anywhere near Red Bull, for example, anywhere near looking like we would ever get a win through the year, that for me felt like it would be kind of bittersweet at the end of the season, where you’ve not had something like today.

“And the fact that we’ve really all come together, everyone’s done such a great job to get the car into a place where we’re feeling much more comfortable and really changes from the foundation from last year.

“So not leaving on a low, but leaving on a high, which has been our goal. There’s still a long, long way to go, but the car, by no means, is the quickest car on the grid right now.

“I think we are super close, and I think hopefully with a couple of, with the next upgrade perhaps, we will be in an even stronger position to really, really be fighting at the front row more consistently,” Hamilton concluded.
