Lewis Hamilton expects that Mercedes will keep improving their performance in the upcoming races.
The updates Mercedes brought to address the car issues proved to be effective as the Silver Arrows finished on podium in 4 latest races. Hamilton is delighted with Mercedes’ progress and anticipates further improvement.
“It’s been really positive to have some consistency coming back. Bit by bit we’re getting a little bit more comfortable in the car. Also with the direction where you set the car up, where you position the car, what the car will accept,” he said.
“Obviously it bit me in the last race [weekend] with the crash in qualifying. But otherwise we’re constantly adding performance, we’re constantly progressing forwards.
“There’s a lot to come in the next races and I’m excited by that. In the last race we were only a few tenths off the lead guys in qualifying. Slowly we’re getting closer.
“The gap may be bigger in some tracks, who knows. But in the last race I was seeing it on TV, the battle up ahead, I hope that I get to be a bit more in the battle some time soon.”
