Hamilton slams Bottas chassis swap myth

Lewis Hamilton has slammed claims there is something fundamentally wrong with his chassis at Paul Ricard as a “myth”. After Baku, where Valtteri Bottas struggled so badly, it emerged that he had been assigned a new chassis for France – the one previously used by Hamilton. However, Hamilton then kicked off the Paul Ricard weekend by telling his engineer in Friday practice that there’s “something wrong” with that chassis. The quality of our engineers’ work and all the cars are exactly the same,” said Hamilton. He suspects that Hamilton asked for a chassis change after struggling at Monaco. Hamilton said Mercedes has done a good job amid the speculation this weekend.
