Back and Forth Formula One Battle Expected by World Champion Lewis Hamilton Facing Ferrari

Formula 1

Racing fans are awaiting the outcome of the 2019 Formula One season and how reigning world champ, Lewis Hamilton, performs for Mercedes against Ferrari. No matter that he claimed a recent victory at the Bahrain Grand Prix along with teammate, Finland’s Valtteri Bottas, ending in second place.

Too bad for Monegasque, Charles Leclerc of the Ferrari team lost power in the closing laps. In spite of a good start, a maiden victory was denied him as he took third. Maybe Mercedes “got lucky.”

Hamilton doesn’t care. The Brit has been quoted as answering the question about Bahrain’s significance for future races,

“I think it’s really difficult to say, honestly. We’ve only had two races and they’ve been [the] flipside [of each other] – one where we were rapid and far ahead and this weekend where they were.”

He says that every season, it takes a good few races before you kind of get a gist of where it all and he anticipates that it’s going to be back and forth between Mercedes and Ferrari.

“If they [Ferrari] have this straight speed in the next race [in China on April 14] then we’ll be watching them disappear but obviously we’re going to be working hard to try and understand where we went wrong this weekend and if we can improve the car.”

To sum it up, Hamilton believes that reliability is a key to success and the team has to keep working all areas.
