Mercedes driver, seven-time Formula 1 champion Lewis Hamilton shared his expectations from the start of the 2022 season.
“From what I see now, at the Bahrain Grand Prix, Ferrari will make a double. Or maybe Red Bull will win. It’s not easy for us in tests. There is a very strong wind, which often changes direction.
The bouncing situation on the straights has gotten worse, we’re working on various scenarios to figure out how to contain the downforce and avoid the bouncing of the car, which was noticeable both in the tests in Barcelona and here in Bahrain. Now in this regard, everyone is in the same boat. Some managed to cope better than others, but in general it is difficult for everyone. The track surface is uneven and slippery, there is a lot of sand on it. It’s too hot in the morning, and a gusty wind rises in the evening, ”GPFans quotes Hamilton as saying.
Formula 1 pre-season tests in Bahrain are held from 10 to 12 March. From March 18 to March 20, the first stage of the 2022 season will also take place there.
