Lewis Hamilton Cements Faith in Mercedes ‘Greatness’ With Uplifting Call to Action Amid F1 MisfortunesRahul MadhavanEssentiallySports

Lewis Hamilton has been in Formula 1 for 16 years, but this season has been different, with the Briton enduring a disappointing start to the campaign. The Mercedes driver has not led a race this year, and his title hopes are hanging by a thread. He currently sits 6th in the championship table and is already 68 points behind leader Charles Leclerc.

The W13 is struggling to match the likes of Red Bull and Ferrari. Although the car showed signs of better performance during Friday’s practice in Miami, it did not materialize on Saturday and Sunday. The team has since been working hard to improve their car and made some changes to its front, rear and beam wing.

Nevertheless, Mercedes and Hamilton are not backing down from the fight. They have bounced back from these situations in the past and will look to do the same. The seven-time world champion is confident and showed his appreciation for the team on social media.

Lewis Hamilton shows his gratitude to the Mercedes team

This Mercedes crew knows how to win. There is no doubt about that. At the same time, Red Bull and Ferrari are in a league of their own. And it will take a huge effort for the Silver Arrows to match them in terms of results. Hamilton, however, is optimistic about his team’s abilities and posted a message on Instagram for the struggling Silver Arrows.

We will keep going! If you’re facing challenges right now, I believe in you the same way I believe in my team.”

The 37-year-old is certainly an inspirational figure around the Mercedes garage. Earlier, George Russell revealed the way Hamilton keeps pushing the team to improve. So, do not be surprised if the Brackley-based outfit pulls a rabbit out of the hat as the season progresses.
