Lewis Hamilton is in a situation that he is not used to: “He was tense and he handled his frustrations unusually”

Lewis Hamilton was unusually tense and agitated during the race in Monaco and Ross Brawn, Formula 1’s sporting director, thinks this is due to the fact that he has little to do with situations like this.

The world champion had a difficult weekend in Monaco and that translated into a seventh fastest time in qualifying, the position where he would also finish the race. Hamilton was clearly frustrated and that was mainly reflected in the wailing about the team radio during the race.

“Lewis was clearly irritated with the way his weekend in Monaco went and that frustration was reflected in the race when he was dissatisfied with how his strategy turned out,” Brawn noted on the official Formula 1 website.

“He’s a very competitive type, so it’s to be expected that he will get frustrated when things don’t go the way he wants. He has rarely experienced this so far, so he is not used to dealing with such things. ”

“Yes, he was pretty worked up, but when he looks back on this weekend, I’m sure he will look at it differently. Mercedes and Lewis have been together for a long time, and they know each other well, so they’ll get over it. That will not be a problem.”

It was a great weekend for Red Bull and Max Verstappen as both the young Dutchman and the team managed to take over the lead in the championship. But Brawn warns Red Bull not to rest on their laurels as it is still a long season.

“Mercedes won’t have weekends like this very often, so Red Bull cannot rely on these gift weekends,” said Brawn.

“But if Red Bull wants to have a shot at the title this year, it is vital that they take their chances, and they did that in Monaco, when Mercedes struggled.”

“The battle for the championship will be about a few points here, a few points there.”

“But to see a thirty point difference turn in their favor, with Red Bull now leading the constructors’ championship by one point, that is very encouraging for the ‘Bulls’.”
