The grid for the first race of the season, Bahrain GP, is decided after the qualifying session. While many teams kept up their pace from the testings and got off to a dreamy start, some struggled to find what they even had in testings. 

And the latter seems to have happened for the Mercedes team and their driver and the seven-time world champion, Lewis Hamilton. The driver, entering the sixteenth season of his career, will start P5 behind both the Ferraris and Red Bulls. Lewis struggled to find pace over the practice sessions and complained of the heavy porpoising during one of the three practice sessions before the qualifying.

Lewis Hamilton had earlier said that they won’t be fighting for the win, and that seems to be coming true for this weekend, as things aren’t looking either for the other driver, George Russell as well. George will start P9 and was out-qualified by Kevin Magnussen’s Haas.

Lewis Hamilton’s words of motivation

As the qualifying session ended disappointingly for Lewis Hamilton and the Mercedes team, the driver was the first to send out the words of encouragement for everyone. The driver had said, “That’s a great effort guys, keep our heads down and continue to push.”

The team has a lot of work to do on the W13 before the GP tomorrow. However, if they aren’t able to pull off something miraculously by tomorrow, there’s still an entire season but one race ahead for the Silver Arrows to improve.

Lewis might be starting from P5, he still remains one of the fiercest drivers on the grid, and none of the cars ahead will be taking him easy. The driver’s experience is nothing short of being extraordinary, and who knows, he might pull off an insane victory in Bahrain.
