Damon Hill pinpoints glaring flaw in Lewis Hamilton’s skill-set at F1 Dutch GP
P1racenews AI automatic summary:

Lewis Hamilton’s ability to thrive amid “confusion” has been identified as a flaw by Damon Hill.

The Mercedes driver had a disappointing weekend at the F1 Dutch Grand Prix, qualifying in 13th place and finishing the race in sixth. Hamilton believed that the team’s decision to use slick tires, contrary to most of the grid, cost him a possible victory. According to former F1 driver Hill, Hamilton performs best when there is no confusion and he can focus on driving, but when there are multiple decisions to be made, he becomes hesitant and it affects his performance. Russell, who also drives for Mercedes, expressed his frustration over the team radio when his tire strategy also backfired. Hill emphasized that drivers have a responsibility to provide information about changing weather conditions, as seen in a race he had at Donington where Senna won because he correctly predicted the rain. The Mercedes team went into the race with the mindset that it wouldn’t rain, and Hamilton was the only one to start on medium tires, diverging from the rest of the pack. However, the pace shown by Max Verstappen and Checo on their intermediate tires should have prompted a different reaction from Mercedes.
