Mercedes has been the dominant force in Formula 1 since the start of the hybrid era in 2014. And despite Max Verstappen winning the world championship in 2021, it was very apparent that the German constructor had built the fastest car on the grid.

However, that is not the case this year. Because of the huge rule changes, teams had to build their cars from scratch, with different teams taking different approaches to maximize their performance. And that’s very obvious Mercedes have come up short. Ferrari have made the most of the rule changes and jumped to the front of the grid while Mercedes are still looking for ways to deal with the porpoise problem.

In the Bahrain season opener, Mercedes finished P3 and P4 but in reality it was helped by the unfortunate downtime suffered by the two Red Bull Racing drivers during the race. Eventually, the Mercedes was overtaken by a Haas, which no one could have seen coming.

In the second race of the season, Mercedes finished P5 and P10, reflecting their current form. But they came back and took P3 and P4 again at the Australian Grand Prix, this time helped by the DNFs of Max Verstappen and Carlos Sainz.

However, seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton believes they are far from hopeless this season. Speaking to Formule1.nl, Hamilton expressed his hope that Mercedes will quickly resolve any issues that have plagued them this season. “Realistically, the top teams are developing at the same pace. Will that be the case with the new cars? Who knows.‘ Hamilton said.

In short, Lewis Hamilton is hoping Mercedes will make a comeback after a disappointing start to the 2022 Formula 1 season. Even though Ferrari and Red Bull Racing are way ahead of the Mercedes F1 team at the moment, Hamilton believes in his team and hopes they can regain lost ground soon. Will his premonition come true and can Mercedes soon catch up with Ferrari? That remains to be seen.
