Lewis Hamilton takes a swipe at his team after Miami GP
May 9, 2022
F1 seven-time champion, Lewis Hamilton discussed his struggles during the race with Fernando Alonso and George Russell at the inaugural Miami Grand Prix and took a subtle swipe at his Mercedes team.
According to reports;
Hamilton had trouble right from the start of the Grand Prix, slipping from P6 to P8 after being hit by Fernando Alonso. Russell had similar issues in falling from P12 to P15, but the youngster took the decision to stay out for a long stint in the hope of a late Safety Car.
The 37-year-old said;
“In that scenario, I have no clue where everyone is,” the seven-time world champion told Sky Sports. “So when the team say it’s your choice, I’m like ‘I don’t have the information to make the decision’.
“That’s what your job is [smiling]. Make the decision for me. You’ve for all the details and I don’t. That’s what you rely on and today they gave it to me and I didn’t understand it. It was just a bit unfortunate under the Safety Car but at least we got points today.
“I’m excited at some stage to take the step forward, which we haven’t yet.”
So his team basically told him he is on his own? Hmm…
