Lew got to be kidding Lewis Hamilton SLAMS Mercedes for tactical blunder which ‘made no sense’ during F1’s Japanese GP

LEWIS HAMILTON has slammed Mercedes for a strategy call at the Japanese Grand Prix which almost derailed his race. Hamilton managed a P5 finish while team-mate George Russell finished P7 at the Suzuka circuit. But it was a call in the later stages of the race involving Russell which Hamilton was less than pleased about. Russell did eventually invert positions with Hamilton, but asked Hamilton to help by slowing down and giving DRS, with the Mercedes pitwall asking Hamilton to help his team-mate out. Regardless, Sainz overtook Russell on the next lap, leaving Hamilton precariously close to the Spaniard in the dying laps of the race. After the Grand Prix, won by Max Verstappen, Hamilton was confused by the strategy and was critical of the decision.
