Lewis Hamilton allegedly had to endure a bit of a shock due to his team’s lack of competitiveness in the 2022 season, according to Mercedes’ trackside engineering director Andrew Shovlin. The seven-time world champion had been “accustomed to” driving a competitive vehicle since 2014, but this year he unexpectedly found himself in a point-scoring battle.

The elusive first victory of 2022 is getting closer and closer for Lewis Hamilton. If the British driver doesn’t take home a single victory this season, it will be the first time in his career that he hasn’t. For any athlete who was at the top of their sport only a few months prior to the season’s start, scenarios like these are surprising.

According to Andrew Shovlin, the Mercedes veteran was a little taken aback by his team’s unexpected decline, which made the season much harder. But gradually, Hamilton’s championship-winning attitude took hold, allowing him to once more find a positive view for his team’s otherwise disastrous season.

In a news conference held prior to the 2022 F1 Mexican Grand Prix, Shovlin discussed the world champion, saying:

“Lewis puts in a lot of effort, is very motivated, and is driven to succeed. And I believe it was a bit of a shock for him to start the year in a fairly challenging vehicle after the competitive position we had in the years prior.”

“Additionally, it will take some time for us to acclimatize to working… During the early part of the year, I was essentially racing in the middle of the field, making several concessions with the vehicle to attempt to obtain the greatest performance while also learning.”

In the next months, Lewis Hamilton intends to extend his contract with Mercedes

In the next two months, Lewis Hamilton intends to extend his contract with Mercedes. The Mercedes driver has been connecting with several F1 magazines while on an open tour. He discussed his unclear future, which he hopes to settle, in an interview with the German journal Auto Motor und Sport (AMuS).

Lewis Hamilton mentioned that as the season was coming to a conclusion, it would be a good time to consider his next move. The Brit informed AMuS:

“It’s once again time for you to consider your options. You evaluate the previous year and make an effort to predict what the subsequent three to five years would look like. How do I envision myself? Which action do I desire? What am I aiming for?”

“I’ve started a lot of enterprises outside of sports that have a strong possibility of succeeding. I want to keep racing, though. I’ve been doing this for 30 years and I enjoy what I do, so I’ve never felt the need to stop. I wish to improve even more. I intend to stay here longer because of this.”

Max Verstappen and Red Bull originally appeared to be able to match Lewis Hamilton, but the Briton ultimately fell short of the Dutchman’s sheer speed. Fans of the British driver may cross their fingers for a triumph in 2022 since one of his preferred courses, Interlagos, is scheduled to appear on the calendar soon.
