Fans of the Formula 1 are used to seeing almost every race win Lewis Hamilton. However, the British driver did not have the desired start to the year 2021. After starting the championship at the top, the last tests were a headache for both him and the team Mercedes. This Saturday there seems to be a recovery, after the second place obtained in Baku.
This Friday, Hamilton had been very concerned about the results he had in free practice. Hamilton had been 11th, marking the worst session of the season and leaving the Mercedes team with much uncertainty. After finishing seventh in Monaco, Azerbaijan’s race was not looking good for the champion.
“I didn’t feel good, in general. I was pushing, I was going to the limit, but the car has another limit. There are areas where it should be faster, but there is no more grip, so we’ll fix that. It’s not easy to be out of the top 10 when we’ve had a rhythm at other circuits, but yes. I don’t really know why we are where we are, ”a concerned Hamilton had said.
However the qualifying session for the Azerbaijan Grand Prix was a 180 degree turn for the seven-time champion. Not only was he competitive, but he has a rhythm that he couldn’t find in other sessions. He was second, leaving the bad vibes behind and sending a message of optimism for tomorrow’s race. On social media, Hamilton showed his happiness.
“The return! That is a guaranteed second place. Really proud of the team for all their hard work, they really came through! ”Hamilton commented on social media. So far in the championship, Hamilton reaped 101 units, four less than his rival this year, Max verstappen.
