Top ten drivers of 2022 – #2 Lewis Hamilton

For the first time in his 16 Formula One seasons, Hamilton didn’t score a pole position, didn’t win a race and didn’t finish the championship inside the top five. Eventually it emerged that with Mercedes trying to find a solution for the W13’s issues, Russell raced with a set-up that was drivable, if not necessarily competitive, while it was Hamilton’s task to try radical solutions in search of a miraculous one that would finally bring out the potential the team believed the car had – but it didn’t…. Once the team gave up on radical experiments and the two drivers raced with similar settings, Hamilton reminded everyone why he was seven championships and more than one hundred races, outqualifying Russell 10-2 in the final 12 Grand Prix and collecting five second places in the process, in many occasions taking the W13 to places where it shouldn’t have been on merit.
