Hamilton confident Mercedes can ‘close the gap’ on rivals as F1 season resumes

The British driver has endured a tough season but believes he can still catch the leaders and challenge at the front, describing his Mercedes as finally feeling like a racing car. Hamilton’s Mercedes has been off the pace for the opening 13 races of the season, struggling for balance and a handful to drive. Hamilton took second while his teammate, George Russell, claimed pole and third place in the race. “We have been improving this consistency from the recent races and the great progress the team is making,” he said. “It is more like a racing car in its characteristics, which is a positive.”. The final half of the season begins at Spa-Francorchamps in what will be a gruelling run of nine races in 12 weeks.
