In a post-race interview at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton, the seven-time Formula One world champion, expressed frustration with his team’s performance and called the Mercedes W14 car “more inconsistent than ever.”
Hamilton, who finished in seventh place at the final race of the season, pointed out the struggles he faced with the car throughout the weekend. He stated that the car’s performance was unpredictable and challenging to manage, which made it difficult for him to compete at the level he is accustomed to.
The British driver’s comments have raised concerns about the future of Mercedes in Formula One, as the team has been dominant in recent years but struggled to maintain their dominance this season. The Mercedes W14 has faced criticism for its lack of overall speed and stability, and Hamilton’s remarks only add to the growing uncertainty surrounding the team’s performance.
Hamilton’s frustration is palpable, as the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix marked the end of a challenging year for both the driver and the team. Despite the setbacks, Hamilton expressed gratitude for the support of his fans and the opportunity to compete at the highest level of motorsport.
As the season comes to a close, Mercedes will undoubtedly be looking for ways to address the issues with the W14 car and regain their competitive edge for the upcoming season. With the potential for major changes in the regulations and the introduction of new cars in 2022, the team will need to work tirelessly to overcome their current challenges and remain a force to be reckoned with in the world of Formula One.
