F1, Lewis Hamilton warns Red Bull
Lewis Hamilton has confidence in the competitiveness of the W15
Lewis Hamilton, to Spanish portal 'Marca' spoke about Mercedes’ prospects for 2024, after two rather disappointing years. In particular, the seven-time world champion revealed that he has seen a preview of the Mercedes W15 he will drive, along with teammate George Russell, in next year’s F1 World Championship.
"Actually è è it’s difficult to make assessments, I’m not an engineer – said Hamilton-. But itè always one of the best feelings of the year to see the new car in the wind tunnel: I love to see it evolve during this period, becauseé I know what I&e will see when I&e get back behind the wheel for testing and then for the races of the new season".
The desire è to return to contend for the World Championship with Red Bull: "I have full confidence in all the people who are giving 100 percent to put a competitive car on the track – Hamilton confirmed -. I really hope that next year we will be moreù competitive, we want to return to fight to win the title after two difficult years".
Hamilton, 38, comes from two unsuccessful seasons, the only ones in a career that began in 2007 in which he won seven world titles, one with McLaren (2008) and six with Mercedes (2014, 2015, 207, 2018, 2019, 2020). In 2021 he came close to his eighth title, losing it literally at the last corner of the controversial Abu Dhabi GP, then the difficulties that the British driver hopes to have finally overcome in 2024.
