Lewis Hamilton is having a disappointing season. The Briton is far from the form he wants to be in, and at the moment it seems impossible for him to win the title. Max Verstappen is the dominant force in the F1 scene. The Dutch seems unstoppable at this point.
However, the Briton is not too concerned about the current situation, considering that his focus is already on the next season. Hamilton wants to win the title next season and stop the dominance of Red Bull, which has lasted for three seasons.
“I really don’t care what position I finish in this year. I’m just focused on just trying to give the best development information for the team, working with the guys to make sure we steer this car in the right way and when we start the first race or the first test next year we hit the ground running.
We don’t have bouncing, we have the rear downforce we need and the car’s efficient and we can keep up with everybody, that’s my dream. So I’m looking further down the road”.
Lewis Hamilton on the last year
Lewis is particularly disappointed with the previous year in which they were far from achieving their goals.
Hamilton is not used to having a car that does not meet his expectations. Things are now much clearer and better, but still far from what they want. “Last year was very, very, very hard. I can’t even put words how difficult it was for the team.
The car was just…I can’t say anymore and obviously the work we’ve done in terms of towards the end of the year. Obviously we had a good race [in Sao Paulo] but then to start this year, again, kind of on the back foot.
It’s definitely been a much more positive year for us, I think we’ve made bigger strides. We’ve had some good results on the podium, it’s more it’s really hard to predict where we’re going with the steps that we’re starting to take."
