Lewis Hamilton once again confirmed that he does not intend to leave Mercedes. His ambitions are to stay in the team and try to achieve his goals. Although the start of the season is not promising, Hamilton wants to show his love to his team, which he has been with for many years.
“I still have 100 percent belief in this team,” Hamilton said, as quoted by crash.net “This is my family and I’ve been here a long time, so I don’t plan on going anywhere else, but we all need a kick.
We all need to get on. The proof is in the pudding, we have seen where the performance is and how people are extracting the performance. We have got to now start making some bold decisions and some big moves in order to close the gap to these guys.
They [Red Bull] will run away with it this year most likely, unless Ferrari can stop them. We will wait and see."
Lewis Hamilton and the 'title race'
It seems that Hamilton is not optimistic about this season, but he is ready to focus his energy on the team and achieving unity.
Although these are difficult moments for Mercedes, right now they need Hamilton the most. His goal is to prevent other teams from achieving their goals. “If you are fighting for a world championship, which is what you prepare for at the beginning of the season… You realise that’s not the case and you redirect that energy to building and strengthening the team, supporting everyone you can and you continue to prepare the same for the races in the sense of your fitness and your mental approach.
We need the Red Bulls, the Ferraris and maybe now the Aston’s not to finish the race for us to be winning at the moment. But that doesn’t mean we can’t catch them up. None of us at this team have ever shied away from a challenge.
We enjoy the challenge. We would much prefer to be at the front but it isn’t the way it is”.
