this year mercedes A pass costs lessAnd based on the results of the season-opening Bahrain Grand Prix, Mercedes still has a lot of work to do. In a new interview with a BBC podcast, Hamilton says the biggest problem may be that Mercedes naturally doesn’t listen to a Lewis Hamilton.
Reported by guardian:
“Last year, I told them things. I told them the problems with the car,” Hamilton told the BBC’s Checkered Flag podcast on Wednesday. “I have driven many cars in my life. I know what the car needs. I know what the car doesn’t need.
“I think it’s really about responsibility,” the 38-year-old added. “It’s about acknowledging and saying, ‘Yeah, you know what? We are not listening to you. It is not where it should be, and we have to work.
“We have to look at the balance in the corners, look at all the weak points and flex as a team. That’s what we’re doing,” Hamilton added. “We are still there.” [multiple] The world champions… they didn’t do well this time. Last year was not good. But that doesn’t mean we can’t move it forward.

Meanwhile, Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff says Mercedes could get away with it. The whole zero sides thing, which may or may not mean that Hamilton is crazy. Hamilton scored championship points last weekend, albeit less than Max Verstappen, Sergio Perez, Alonso and Carlos Sainz Jr. If this continues, this season is looking more and more like Red Bull.
