In the wake of Red Bull’s recent victories in Brazil, Lewis Hamilton believes that the team will continue to dominate Formula 1 in the coming years. This conclusion is based on their impressive performance at a circuit where they previously struggled.
Unfortunately, Hamilton had a disappointing race, facing setbacks and car problems that caused him to fall behind. He finished in eighth place, more than a minute behind race winner Max Verstappen.
Despite his disappointment, Hamilton remains optimistic but also shares a remarkable prediction. He believes that Red Bull’s current lead will translate into them being the fastest team by a significant margin in the years to come.
Regarding his own race, Hamilton attributes Mercedes’ difficulties at the Interlagos circuit to the floor of his Mercedes W14.
“I anticipated a challenging day, and the issues persisting between the sprint race and the main race were evident. I suspect that the floor wasn’t functioning properly, which affected our overall performance. We had to opt for a larger rear wing, making us slower on the straights. These challenges caused us to lose valuable time and struggle in the corners. We need to investigate the root cause of these problems,” Hamilton explained.
This setback serves as a learning opportunity for the team, instilling the need for collaborative efforts to improve for future races. Detailed analysis and evaluation will be critical moving forward.
