Even after taking three out of five wins so far this season – and finishing second both times when he wasn’t victorious – Lewis Hamilton has been very public in admitting that Mercedes’ current W10 doesn’t yet suit his driving style 100%.
Having been out-qualified by Valtteri Bottas by 0.634s in qualifying for the Spanish Grand Prix, Hamilton hit back in emphatic style on Sunday by winning comfortably from his Finnish team mate.
And after the race, Hamilton was honest about how his relationship with the W10 was developing.
“It’s definitely been a bit of a hard first four races [until now],” said Hamilton as he stepped out of the car.
“Naturally it’s a great car but we don’t always get along, so I’m grateful that in the race, we managed to settle our differences.”
