Lewis Hamilton insists Mercedes have ‘got a lot of problems’ and fears they might not be able to challenge for victories for the first FOUR races, with both Red Bull and Ferrari looking quick ahead of the season opener in Bahrain

Lewis Hamilton fears Mercedes might need a few races to unlock the performance of their car and challenge for victories in the new F1 season. However, there were some concerns after testing with Mercedes not appearing to have the pace to challenge Ferrari or Red Bull. ‘The testing has been difficult,’ Hamilton said during a visit to Expo 2020 Dubai. He said after testing: ‘We’re not the quickest at the moment. Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz said: ‘It’s typical Mercedes, typical George (Russell), hype up the others and then come to the first race and blow the competition away.’. Going into last season, Mercedes didn’t appear to have the pace of the Red Bull in testing, but went on to win the season opener in Bahrain.
