Lewis Hamilton is concerned: “If Red Bull is so fast everywhere we have a problem”

Seven-time F1 champion Lewis Hamilton fears for his title chances if Red Bull continues to perform as strongly everywhere as it did last weekend in Mexico.

With four races left this season, Max Verstappen is now nineteen points ahead of Lewis Hamilton in the F1 title battle after his victory in Mexico. In particular, the way and ease with which Verstappen dominated the race in Mexico makes Lewis Hamilton take care of the remaining races of the season.

The seven-time world champion could never really make a fist against Max Verstappen on Sunday. In fact, at the end of the race he still had to pull out all the stops to hold off Perez for second place.

“There are still four races but nineteen points is a lot,” said Hamilton. “He has already won a lot this year.”

“If they can continue today’s pace into the next races, I think we might have a problem, or we might be in real trouble.”

Mercedes had a particularly difficult time competing with Red Bull when racing in a maximum downforce configuration. Hamilton hopes that they can avoid that during the last four races of the season.

“I don’t know if they will use that huge wing today. We’ll see when we get there, of course, but I hope we’ll be a little shorter.”

“Obviously I feel like I have to win every race because we need those extra points, not to lose those points, to try to win them back. That was the goal going into the last race and the race before and before and here this weekend as well.”

“But they are just too fast. So we are giving absolutely everything we have, but unfortunately it is not enough to compete with them at the moment.”
