Hamilton has not quit Formula 1

The note was distributed ahead of Mercedes’ 2022 car reveal late this week. Russell, who has replaced Hamilton’s former teammate Valtteri Bottas, warned that it will not be smooth sailing for the 2022 lineup this year. “I think at least initially they will be slower than the previous cars,” Ferrari driver Carlos Sainz said. “It is important to remember that the last generation of cars has been in development for a number of years, while the new cars have their first season ahead of them now. When a car that’s more than 40kg heavier than its predecessor comes close to the performance of the last generation, that’s an interesting proposition,” the Spaniard added.
