Lewis Hamilton gives up on F1 title as Mercedes' misery continues in dire Imola sprint


Lewis Hamilton believes his chances of securing an eighth F1 crown has gone as Mercedes problems worsened at Imola. The Briton claimed the team as ‘obviously not fighting for the championship’ as they failed to reach the top 10 during Saturday’s sprint race.

He said: “Ultimately, we haven’t got it right this year but everyone is working as hard as they can to correct it. This is the situation that we are faced with but everyone has their heads down and everyone is working as hard as they can.

“We’re obviously not fighting for this championship but we’re fighting to understand the car and progress through the year.” The seven-time champion started the race 13th after he was knocked out of Q2 yesterday afternoon. 

However, he lost a spot during the race on Saturday and was then stuck behind a train of cars for the rest of the afternoon. His team-mate George Russell was only 11th, finishing in the same spot he started.
