Lewis Hamilton 2022 F1 Imola GP

Reigning constructors F1 champion Mercedes’ team principal Toto Wolff apologizes for a “terrible race” and an “undrivable” car as Lewis Hamilton finishes P14 at the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix.

Hamilton start race from 14th position on the grid for Imola race, he was unable to lift the position and unlucky pit-stop incidents also demote him better position in the Sunday race. The Brit encountering a disappointing afternoon and finding himself at the back of a DRS line, unable to make the move on those ahead of them.

“Lewis, sorry for what you needed to drive today. I know this is undriveable and not what we deserved to score as a result. We will move on from there but this was a terrible race,” Wolff said on team radio after the chequered flag.

Hamilton replied: “No worries Toto. Let’s keep working hard,” to which the Mercedes chief added: “We will.”

Totally different story for Hamilton’s teammate George Russell, who managed to climb from 11th to fourth. Hamilton started 14th before finding himself stuck in the lower midfield and unable to find a way out.

When the media asked if pitting earlier could have helped, a dejected Hamilton wonder about: “I really don’t know to be honest. I don’t think it would have made much of a difference. A weekend to forget, that’s for sure.”

“I am out of the championship, for sure, there’s no question about that, but I will still keep working as hard as I can and try and somehow put it back together.” Hamilton added

Vettel names Hamilton as biggest F1 rival

Vettel and Hamilton

Four-time F1 world champion Sebastian Vettel has named seven-time F1 world champion Lewis Hamilton as the biggest rival in his last 15 years of F1 career, the German ace will be retired from the F1 at the end of season.

During his Ferrari era in 2015 to 2020, Vettel fought with Mercedes speedy Hamilton. Also, there was also some heated rivalry for the 2017 World Title. The duo battled for Pole and race victory in the many Grand Prix’s.

In an interview for F1 official website, he was asked to name who he thought was the biggest opponent of his F1 career. He said: “Lewis, especially when I was at Ferrari. Lewis has always been right up there. Before that, it was probably Fernando Alonso, when he was at Ferrari.”

“Fernando doesn’t need any advice. I’m not sure he’s taking any advice, but he doesn’t need it anyway. He’s been around for so long and seen so much – he’ll be fine,” added Vettel, who also pondered whether a better car would have kept him racing alongside Alonso (41) and Hamilton (37) for longer.

Asked if more aggressive car might have tempted him to extend his Formula 1 career, he said: “I don’t know. Would I be retiring if I had been very competitive over the last three or four years: winning races, fighting for championships – maybe winning another one?

“I might have come to the same decision. Equally, I might not have. It’s impossible to say, but it has crossed my mind.

“Finishing 10th doesn’t give me a buzz because I know how it feels to finish first. If you’ve never finished first, the first time you finish 10th you get a real buzz. But I’m happy that I don’t get a buzz from finishing 10th.”

The German added: “I still love the sport. I still love racing. The decision to retire was a tough one, but I’ve been thinking about it for a while. I know how much commitment this sport requires, and I feel like it’s a good time to do other things.”
