Japanese Grand Prix: Lewis Hamilton to visit Mercedes designers

Lewis Hamilton says he can “only beat the drum so much” to his Mercedes team about fixing the problems with their car for next season. Hamilton said: “I know what the problem is; it’s just getting the guys to make the changes. I try to argue my point but it is not my job to design the car. Hamilton’s performance in Suzuka underlined the weaknesses of this year’s car. Hamilton has been vocal with his verdict that Mercedes pursued the wrong design direction with their car this year, which is the same as the one they chose last year and very different from that of dominant Red Bull. As early as the first race, he expressed his frustration that Mercedes had not abandoned their 2022 car philosophy and followed the route pioneered by Red Bull.
