Lewis Hamilton risk pays off for Mercedes after 'painful' pre-season decision


“Lewis did a fantastic job by carrying those extra sensors, but ultimately the cost was small. It was a matter of grams between the two [cars] which is what we wanted.

“Absolutely [we gathered good data]. It’s not that, from this, you can suddenly find something that will turn everything on its head and we’ll find a solution in one race, but it provides clues and understanding of what we need to do to move forwards.”

While the team’s mechanics work hard to find answers to Mercedes’ problems, their early-season damage limitation has reflected positively in the points standings. Red Bull’s reliability issues mean the Silver Arrows sit second in the Constructors’ Championship, while surprisingly Charles Leclerc’s nearest challenger on the individual front is currently Russell.
