Hamilton: "Not technical" Vegas F1 track layout will help Mercedes
After a strong performance in Austin and Mexico, Mercedes struggled in Brazil. They had difficulties with the car’s set-up, resulting in bad tyre degradation. The team even considered withdrawing the cars from parc ferme after the sprint race. The upcoming race in Vegas is different from Interlagos, with long straights that could expose Mercedes’ ongoing issues with drag. Hamilton is hopeful that the setup will be easier and that they can keep up in the corners. Despite the struggles in Brazil, Hamilton is grateful for the reminder that there is still work to be done for Mercedes to compete at the front of the pack.
