Lewis Hamilton hopes that the Las Vegas Strip Circuit not being “the most technical of circuits” will help Mercedes overcome
Mercedes had a difficult weekend in Brazil, with Hamilton finishing eighth and Russell retiring due to engine temperature concerns. Both drivers struggled with excessive tire degradation because of a compromised setup choice. Hamilton acknowledged that Mercedes understood the root cause of their issues. Prior to their slump in Brazil, Mercedes had been performing well, with Hamilton competing for victory in the United States before a disqualification. Hamilton agreed with Team Principal Toto Wolff that Brazil was their worst weekend in 13 years. Despite the challenges, Hamilton is confident that Mercedes can finish the season strong and is optimistic about the upcoming race in Las Vegas. He believes that securing second place in the Constructors’ Championship would be a greater achievement than closing the gap with Sergio Perez in the drivers’ standings.
