Last year's Formula 1 world champion Monster Energy driver Lewis Hamilton held a motivation meeting with the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport team ahead of the Russian Grand Prix this week. Silver Arrows teammate Monster Energy driver Valtteri Bottas's 65 points ahead of the championship championship, Hamilton, who won five championships, lost the last three races against the rivals Ferrari team.
Lewis said that the Italian Ferrari team welcomed the battle, and now all they have to do is show a better performance and a good fight in Sochi. Lewis said he did not lose his determination after finishing fourth at the Singapore Grand Prix. This mood signaled that he would continue the contention with Charles Leclerc and Sebastian Vettel in a pleasant way.
”People don't know how much we're working in the background, Lewis Lewis said. As the season progresses, this business gets tighter and we are pleased. But we also need to do a better job. We were doing very well at the beginning of the year and we were very open with our competitors on the way to the championship. But this could easily be closed. We haven't won yet, and we need to pull ourselves together. We're not feeling so good right now. And that's a good thing, because we should all be feeling the same pain right now. With this pain, we must enter the next race and try to perform better. ”
The Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport Team won all five Russian Grand Prix events held in Sochi since the modern F1 era began in 2015. Valtteri Bottas, who won this race at 2017, said he was looking forward to the rematch in Sochi, especially after finishing fifth in Singapore.
Alt I feel that I have an unfinished business in Sochi. It was a good track for me and I'm sure it will happen again. A challenging runway for Ferrari filled with straight roads. I'm going to Sochi with good psychology. We know that Ferrari is moving better than we are. All we can do is go faster and make a better race. ”
The race in Sochi 29 will take place on Sunday in September.
