Bahrain Grand Prix: Lewis Hamilton says Mercedes facing challenging start to the F1 season

Lewis Hamilton is resigned to a difficult start to the Formula 1 season with his Mercedes team lagging behind champions Red Bull. “I knew from the moment I drove the car where we were and the challenges we are facing,” Hamilton said. “There is no reason why we can’t fight as the season hots up,” Russell said. Hamilton said: “On a positive note, not having bouncing is a huge plus and trying to understand what the problems were while having bouncing made it difficult to work out what those are. Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc, Verstappen’s closest challenger last year, said: “Red Bull and max seem to be very strong. Hamilton said that Mercedes’ competitive position would have no bearing on his desire to stay with the team beyond the end of his current contract this season. “Whether or not we have a difficult year this year, I’ll still be here,” he said. Hamilton said: “I couldn’t say I know whether it’s got worse.
