Lewis Hamilton believes he had the pace to match Max Verstappen in the Dutch Grand Prix but says Mercedes made the wrong strategic call that prevented him showing it.

Lewis Hamilton believes that he had the pace to compete with Max Verstappen in the Dutch Grand Prix, but Mercedes made a strategic error that hindered his performance. The rain on the opening lap caused some drivers to switch to intermediate tires, but Mercedes incorrectly predicted that the shower would be brief and kept Hamilton and teammate George Russell on slicks. As a result, they fell to the back of the field, and although Hamilton managed to fight back to finish in the top six, he feels that he could have achieved a higher position if the right decision had been made. Hamilton believes that he had the pace to challenge for a podium spot and hopes for better fortunes in the next race with lower downforce settings. Despite the frustration, Hamilton finds satisfaction in his progress from starting 13th and dropping to the back, eventually finishing sixth. He sees it as redemption after a challenging qualifying session.
