Mercedes in Quest for Proof Amid Hamilton’s Qualifying Struggles Against Russell

Published

on

Mercedes has requested "evidence" | In qualifying sessions, Lewis Hamilton is behind George Russell with a score of 1-5

"It seems like there might be, somewhat, an understanding of the situation…"

Lewis Hamilton has outperformed George Russell in only one of six Formula 1 qualifying rounds this season.

This weekend in Miami, Hamilton secured the eighth position in the qualifiers, just one spot behind his teammate from Mercedes.

Jenson Button, who once teamed up with Hamilton, is confident that Hamilton won't be affected if Russell outshines him in qualifying sessions once more on a Saturday.

"Does it impact him? In my opinion, it doesn't impact him, simply because he is right behind his teammate," Button commented on Sky Sports.

"Lewis is in a positive state of mind. He's aware of his own talent. I believe he doesn't have any concerns regarding that."

“He’s planning to depart next year as well!”

Button commented on Hamilton's Miami qualifying performance, stating, "He managed to clock faster times on the medium tires because, when using the softs, it appeared he experienced overheating in a particular turn.

"He lost a significant amount of time in just two corners, which affected his performance for the remainder of the lap."

"I maintain that, if one can manage the soft tyre effectively, it likely was the superior choice."

"However, it's challenging. You're constantly tense."

Mercedes has called for 'evidence'

The issues that have troubled Mercedes since early 2022 appear to be far from resolved.

"According to Danica Patrick, George mentioned that they took a specific approach to find a solution."

"And now they've shifted in the opposite direction."

"It appears there might be a slight understanding of the situation."

"However, the evidence must be reflected in the outcomes."

"Up until now, there have been instances – notably towards the end of last year – when they appeared quite strong and able to compete once more."

"Yet, as we find ourselves in 2024, they face challenges."

"Once they manage to consistently place among the top five in several races consecutively, the narrative changes. At that point, it's possible they've cracked the code."

Button included: "Currently, their performance is lacking, yet there have been moments of brilliance."

Russell expressed concerns this weekend, stating, “It's apparent that a few adjustments we've implemented since last year's conclusion may have excessively compensated in certain areas of our development.”

"Currently, we're facing constraints with the vehicle, which is a complete departure from the situation we encountered a year ago."
