The former world champion probably lost the win in the last race, or at least a place on the winners ’stage, due to Mercedes’ tire problems. Let us remember that the Englishman took second place on Saturday, but in the race, as we have seen several times this year, Mercedes failed to resist the wear of Pirelli tires.

Hamilton wanted to go to the Mercedes factory to work immediately after the race due to tire problems, but even before that he had to go to Florida to meet with sponsors: “I have a trip to Orlando waiting for me, and then immediately to the factory to work. We need to find a solution to the tire problem. I don’t know why we’re so lagging behind compared to Ferrari and Lotus, which obviously got to know the tires better. Anyway, now it is very important that we find a solution and improve by the next race. "

To conclude, Lewis said once again that he doesn’t know why they are so very fast in qualifying and lose so much in the race: “Everything seems to be working very well, but then comes the race. We really wear tires a lot over long distances, which makes us uncompetitive. We don't know yet where the problem is, but we will do our best to solve it as soon as possible. "
