Lewis Hamilton assures that he will win again even if “it will take time”
“I will win again”This is what Lewis Hamilton said on Thursday in Jeddah (Saudi Arabia) where he will compete in the second Grand Prix of the season on Sunday (6 p.m.).
The 38-year-old driver finished last season without a single victory and is still looking for a 103rd success in Formula 1 since his last in Saudi Arabia in December 2021. Convinced that he will return to victory, the Briton admits all the same as ” that is going to take time. »
After the race, the seven-time world champion said his team, Mercedes, was on the wrong track. At the same time, team boss Toto Wolff had agreed that the concept of the car, dubbed ‘zero pontoon’, needed a rethink.
For its part, Red Bull started the season perfectly by easily taking the first two places on the podium (Verstappen and Pérez) leaving Lewis Hamilton perplexed.
“I think in the race they didn’t push and so I think they’re a lot quicker than they looked. They will most likely get away this year unless Ferrari can stop them,” did he declare. “At some point in the year we hope to close the gap, but by then it will probably be too late to fight for a Championship,” added the Briton.
