Lewis Hamilton: Why Red Bull breaching salary cap is another ‘kick’ on 2021 loss

Hamilton says that, even once he had decided he would come back, it was not plain sailing, even before he tried the Mercedes car for first time. “I would say getting back into training was not easy,” he says. Hamilton says trying to take this year’s Mercedes to the limit is “like creeping up behind a horse”. Trying to resolve the car’s problems, Hamilton says, has been “gruelling” for everyone at Mercedes. “We sat in February and we were all upbeat,” he says. Hamilton says he suspected it was going to be a long and difficult year immediately. “I had a feeling when I first drove the car,” he says. Hamilton, Mercedes engineers say, is better able to cope with the car’s unpredictability. And here, for the first time, he says definitively that he will sign a new contract with Mercedes and race on beyond next season. I’ve been doing it for 30 years, and I don’t feel that I should have to stop.
