Lewis Hamilton didn’t have the best outings at the Hungaroring during Friday practice and after, while dwelling on the situation indicated he and the Mercedes crew struggled throughout the afternoon.
Lewis Hamilton was able to complete 25 laps of the Hungaroring in FP1 and also land his W13 on a decent P7. At the end of the FP2 session, with everyone betting on the soft tire runs, the Brit fell further down the grid and found himself outside the top 10.
The W13 has proven to be a great challenge at the Hungaroring so far and Hamilton, reflecting on the situation, said: “The car is a bit of a struggle today. It’s crazy how it vibrates so much from track to track, yet it’s set up simply.”
“I’m just trying to figure out how we can get the car to run. It’s a bit loose at the moment and not doing what we want. So a difficult day.”

Lewis Hamilton suffered damage to his W13 during practice on Friday
Lewis Hamilton struggled to get the power out of the car on Friday and to add to his problems he also managed to damage the car a bit.
The 37-year-old saw the damage as one of the reasons he was struggling during training. While sharing glimpses of his Friday afternoon, Hamilton said: “I couldn’t walk in the end because I sustained an injury. As a result, I lost a lot of downforce and after that it became difficult with the long run pace. It’s going to be a tough weekend for sure, but we’ll give everything.”
Despite a tough showing at the Hungaroring, the former 7-time World Champion isn’t about to bow down to the challenge and has announced the Silver Arrows will give it all they have in the final race before the summer break.
