Lewis Hamilton warns Mercedes of ‘too much experimentation’ ahead of British Grand Prix

Lewis Hamilton has stated that he hopes his team will avoid “too many experiments” in view of next month’s British Grand Prix, as the Mercedes driver wants to take advantage of the best possible finish of the season.

The seven-time Formula 1 champion Hamilton lost the title last year in the last round of the season, in a controversial finish with the final champion Max Ferstappen. While the Red Bull man leads the drivers’ standings with six wins from nine races so far in 2022, Hamilton is struggling.

The Briton has just two podiums, finishing third in the first season in Bahrain and at last weekend’s Canadian GP. Still, Hamilton wants to build on Sunday’s result as he prepares for the British GP, where he has more racing victories than any driver in F1 history.

The 37-year-old’s eight wins at Silverstone also make the track a joint favorite of Hamilton, along with Hungaroring in Hungary.
