Here is the transcript of the post 2021 French Grand Prix track interviews and press conference featuring Lewis Hamilton!
Lewis Hamilton believes Mercedes would have lost the French Grand Prix to Red Bull in any scenario because “those guys are just too quick now”.
Toto Wolff says he believes Mercedes lost the French Grand Prix because of strategy, and not because their car was slower.
Lewis Hamilton, Valtteri Bottas, Toto Wolff and Trackside Engineering Director Andrew Shovlin give their comments on the French Grand Prix.
Lewis Hamilton explains why he didn’t defend harder against Max Verstappen in the final laps of the French Grand Prix.
Valtteri Bottas was frustrated with Mercedes’ call to leave him on worn down hard tyres until the end of the race, which was evident from his in-race radio message.
Toto Wolff explains Mercedes’ choice to pit Valtteri Bottas early, a move that triggered early pit stops and might have cost Lewis Hamilton the win.
After losing P1 to Max Verstappen on the penultimate lap of the French Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton defends Mercedes’ strategy.
Lewis Hamilton, P2, +2.904
Valtteri Bottas, P4, +14.618
Lewis Hamilton says being “in the middle of the Red Bulls” provides Mercedes with an opportunity to “really apply pressure” at the French Grand Prix.
