Lewis Hamilton is experiencing a really difficult season after having dominated Formula 1 with an iron fist for the last few years. The English pilot is desperate with the Mercedes W13 and he made it clear in this Friday’s session at the Canadian Grand Prixwhere he could not pass the thirteenth time.
“A disaster,” Hamilton said of the weekend’s first two practice sessions. In the first round he was eighth, running with an experimental floor to try to solve his problems with the pouringand in the free seconds it ended thirteenth, almost 1.3 seconds behind the Dutchman Max Verstappen (Redbull).
“It’s like the car is getting worse, it’s getting sadder and sadder the more we do to it. I don’t know, we’ll keep working on it, It is what it is. I think this is the car of the year, so we will have to hang in there and work hard to build a better car for next season,” Hamilton said after Friday’s session.
“the car is very bad“added the Englishman, seven times Formula 1 world champion.
