Lewis Hamilton will learn if he can beat Max Verstappen to 2022 F1 title next week

He continued: “[In 2009] I knew the car was strong. What I didn’t know was what the team were going to do with it because we hadn’t done anything like practice or pitstops or anything.

“I’ve had years as well at McLaren where Lewis was my teammate, and we drove the car, and I was like, ‘Oh wow, we’re a long way off the pace.’ And then they adjusted a few things aerodynamically, and it was good.

“You still can have a winning car that doesn’t work on day one, a little bit like Mercedes in 2021.

“They were really on the back foot, and they won the Constructors’ Championship. It’s an exciting time for all the drivers.”
