Second again, Lewis Hamilton has not won for 4 races, during the Spanish Grand Prix. From Red Bull has had a string of successes in Monaco, Baku, France and today in Styria. This is also the first time in the hybrid era that Mercedes does not win a race for 4 Grand Prix in a row. Lewis Hamilton, for his part, did not really enjoy his Sunday.

“It was a solo race for me, explains the British pilot. I tried to fight against Max but with the speed they have... they have clearly made a leap forward in terms of performance over the last few races. I don't know where we are wasting time but we will work to understand better. Despite everything, these are points for the team. »

It was a disillusioned Hamilton after the race who spoke to the media, not understanding where they could have found the speed.

“They’re fast, period., specifies Hamilton. I can't do much about it. We can, on the other hand, work to improve certain things but it will not be easy. I don't know if it's the front wing or if it's the engine power but we have to do better to win again.”

Next week, the Austrian Grand Prix will be on the same circuit. If the conditions are similar, it will be difficult to win the race next Sunday.
