Lewis Hamilton does not think that the upgrades Mercedes brought to Imola will make a big difference in their performance.

Mercedes brought an upgrade package for this weekend’s Emilia Romagna GP in an attempt to catch up with Ferrari and Red Bull. Hamilton has shared his thoughts on whether it will make a significant impact on the Silver Arrows’ performance.

“Ultimately it’s fundamentally still the same car. I know everybody in the factory has been working hard over Easter to try to bring event the smallest bits of improvement to the car. We don’t have anything that’s ground-breaking that’s going to change our result but I hope that we do move slightly forward,” he said.

At the same time, the Briton believes that Mercedes will fix the car issues.

“There’s a long way to go. You’ve seen in the previous year how much happens in a season. Still so many races to go, there’s still time for us to turn this around, there’s still time for us to fix this car and extract the full potential. I know that all the team are working flat-out to try to achieve that.”
