Austrian Grand Prix: Lewis Hamilton ‘truly believes’ Mercedes can win in 2022

Hamilton said consecutive podium finishes have “encouraged us that we are moving in the right direction”. Hamilton said that at the beginning of the season the car was performing so poorly he was concerned Mercedes would never return to competitiveness in 2022. “Earlier this year I definitely wasn’t sure we would ever get a win in this car, but that was not the way we like to think. “At Silverstone there was definitely potential to win the race,” he said. Hamilton said that Zhou Guanyu’s huge accident at the start of the British Grand Prix was a “reminder to those watching that this is a dangerous sport”. Hamilton said: “We take risks out there, real risks, at crazy speeds. “I didn’t realise I was between the barriers,” he said. Zhou said he realised the positioning of his car only when he saw pictures of the accident afterwards. “I wasn’t sure if it was from my body or is this from the car,” he said, “so I just tried to switch off the engine because the engine was still on by then.
