Lewis Hamilton was left surprised after finishing the Canadian Grand Prix P3, second podium for the British driver in 2022.

The Mercedes cars finished third and fourth respectively. Hamilton was understandably surprised post-race after the challenging struggles he’s faced throughout the first half of the season.

“We’ve had an awesome crowd here. It’s overwhelming to get third place, it’s been such a battle this year with the car,” Hamilton said.

“As a team, we stayed focused and never gave up. They are a little bit too quick, but we’re getting closer. We’ve got to keep pushing and hopefully, eventually, we’ll be in the fight with these guys.

“Our pace was good. We did a lot of work in the simulator to get the setup right. I didn’t expect this coming into the weekend,” he added.
