Hamilton: Mercedes is not the fastest and does not claim to win at the moment


Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton said he does not believe that the team will be able to fight for victories in the 2021/22 Formula 1 season.

“At this point, I’m sure everyone understands, we’re not the fastest. Ferraris look faster. Then Red Bull, and then us, and maybe McLaren.

I don’t think that Mercedes will fight for victory. Of course, in a week the alignments will clear up. But maybe there will be surprises”, — quotes the words of Hamilton Autosport.

The driver also shared his impressions of the aerodynamics of the new cars.

“Chasing opponents is a little easier, which is a plus. I hope F-1 went in the right direction. I would like to get better tires at some point, ”added Hamilton.

Today, March 12, on the third day of pre-season testing in Bahrain, the Mercedes pilot took ninth place.

Bahrain will host the first round of the 2022 Formula 1 season from 18 to 20 March.
