Lewis Hamilton: I don’t feel connected to this car. No matter what I do

Lewis Hamilton has confirmed that he does not see himself anywhere but in the Mercedes team. He is currently focused on helping a team achieve great results. Hamilton is not happy with what he has at his disposal, but it looks like Mercedes could make a breakthrough in the coming period.

"I love this team and I’m so grateful for everyone that’s been on the journey with me,” he said, as quoted by crash.net “I don’t envisage being anywhere else. I don’t see myself quitting, I don’t feel like I’m a quitter.

But I wouldn’t say that it’s giving me a lot. I have been there, done that, got the T-shirt, many times. I am trying to be patient and work with the team to get us to a good place. I’m not planning on going anywhere else but I couldn’t get any more out of the car today.

I’ve got to keep trying”.

The Briton is proud of his teammate, George Russell. On the other hand, it is difficult for him to establish a connection with the car. It seems that he has lost confidence, considering that Mercedes has been trying to return to the old level for a long time, but without success.

“George did a great job and he’s right up there on the second row, so the car’s obviously got performance. But I don’t feel connected to this car. No matter what I do, no matter what I change, I can’t get confidence in it.

I’m at a bit of a loss with it. I just struggled to extract the performance from the car”. Hamilton had a bad day in qualifying, but he wasn't too disappointed about it. “No, not really. I wouldn’t say so, the car is where it is." He also gave predictions for the race in which he ended up 5th “I wouldn’t hold my breath”.
