Lewis Hamilton says he has complete ‘trust’ in Mercedes to give him a title-winning car after dramatically losing out to Max Verstappen last season… with the seven-time world champion relishing new 2022 rules in the hope they ‘deliver closer racing’

Lewis Hamilton has full faith Mercedes can deliver him a car ready to challenge for a record eighth world championship after he controversially missed out last season. ‘Every year is exciting but this one is completely brand new,’ the Briton said. ‘I have seen designs of our car obviously but this is the first time you get to see the other teams out there on track. ‘Of course that is a risk (with the new regulations) but I trust the team. However, times in testing have to be treated with caution with the teams operating different strategies and Verstappen completed 80 laps – more than any other driver. Hamilton will take over from new team-mate Russell after the lunch break as the 37-year-old is entering his 16th campaign as an F1 driver.
