After the controversial 2021 end, Lewis Hamilton is gearing up and all ready to fight for another title battle again. The seven-time World Champion Lewis Hamilton is aware of the increase in competition for the upcoming 2022 season with racing starting from March. With the implementation of new rules and regulation in order to inculcate fair play and to avoid controversies in the future, all the ten teams on the grid have their chance to take away the spot light.

McLaren and Ferrari are a major threat to both Mercedes and Red Bull, claims Lewis Hamilton
“Last season, the British driver had a close battle with Max Verstappen. The championship battle was ultimately led to decide in the final race of the final season in Abu Dhabi at the Yas Marinas Circuit, leaving Mercedes and Red bull’s full focus on 2022 only after the season. The situation created towards the end of the race might leave a huge impact,” according to Lewis Hamilton.
“Hamilton is also concerned as he not only expects a tough competition from Red Bull but also from Ferrari and McLaren who might have get a sizeable lead. If both the teams had a great start of the season, they might get chances in winning podiums while their competition takes times in developing the cars.” As reported by gpblog.
According to Lewis Hamilton, Mercedes is running under a significant risk but is confident in his team’s work in the development of the car along with getting the most out of the car.
