Lewis Hamilton urges Mercedes to ‘push massively’ to fix worrying problem to close gap on Max Verstappen ‘ASAP’

LEWIS HAMILTON has urged Mercedes to fix their car urgently after watching rival Max Verstappen sprint into the distance in Bahrain. The Dutchman won the opening race of the season at a canter with his teammate Sergio Perez finishing a comfortable second. The result underlined Red Bull’s dominance with even the impressive Fernando Alonso finishing 38 seconds behind in third. As for fifth-placed Hamilton, he was a mammoth 51 seconds off Verstappen, who he was once neck-and-neck with when the pair scrapped over the 2021 title. Hamilton’s downbeat assessment was echoed by his teammate George Russell, who shared an ominous prediction on how dominant he believed Red Bull were.
