The Silver Arrows, who after a challenging season in 2022, were anticipating a successful run campaign in 2023. However, things haven’t gone in their favor so far. Nevertheless, you can never write off a team like Mercedes or a driver like Lewis Hamilton who belongs to a fighter family. According to Sky Sports analyst Ted Kravitz, Lewis Hamilton’s obstinacy might bring the old Mercedes back.

Since the days of the testing, things had been challenging at the Mercedes garage. While Mercedes driver George Russell has already stated his belief that Red Bull legitimately owns the world championship, team principal Toto Wolff claims that the fundamental design of the car needs to be changed. Besides the team’s star driver, Lewis Hamilton’s contract is also going to expire this year. However, during these miserable days, the legendary driver has not forgotten his family values. The 38-year-old man comes from a family who knows how to fight through the hard days.

However, during these miserable days, the legendary driver has not forgotten his family values. The 38-year-old man comes from a family who knows how to fight through the hard days. We may remember that last year, his cerebral palsy-suffering brother Nicolas, who drives in the British Touring Car Series, achieved his ambition to drive a Formula 1 car. Also, the seven-time champion’s parents experienced a number of challenges while raising him. As his family relocated to the United Kingdom, Hamilton faced several racist comments. This undoubtedly contributed to the famed driver’s fearlessness.

While talking about the determination of Lewis Hamilton, who is giving his all to bring the team back on track, Kravitz said, as per f1maximaal.nl, ” I don’t think he can do that mentally. He’s constantly encouraging the team to improve, he’s still going all out.”

The Mercedes ace driver is unwilling to bow, despite widespread claims that Red Bull will win the season. In fact, the seven times champion intends to maintain his positivity despite the challenging circumstances.

Hamilton finished seventh in qualifying. Once the Bahrain Grand Prix got off, the 103-time winner of the race battled fiercely against Fernando Alonso, who despite a shaky start finished in the top three. When asked if he was concerned about the team’s performance because the Brackley-based team made no progress in the fresh season also, the British driver responded to motorsports.com. “Concerned wouldn’t be the word”

The Englishman further stated that, “There is nothing I can say, I don’t want to say too much. We’ve just got to keep working. We know we are not where we need to be, and we know that this isn’t the right car. It is a difficult one. But I’ve just got to try and stay positive, keep my head up and keep pushing the guys. Keep trying to be a positive light for them and get the best points I can.”
